201 Vote's YES! for GE Strike Authorization

On May 21, 2019 members of IUE-CWA Local 201 in Lynn, Massachusetts voted unanimously to support a Strike Authorization heading into 2019 GE national contract negotiations. 

“Since 2018 there has been a shift in the labor movement, from bargaining as usual to fighting back.  It is not lost on this union that we are in a historic moment – and labor must get on the offensive to survive.” Adam Kaszynski, President IUE-CWA Local 201

 “This Company has lost their direction and moral compass”, said Local 201 Business Agent Bill Maher. “We stand with our brothers & sisters in solidarity across the country as we commence negotiations one week after Memorial Day, a day that we remember those that fought for the common good and the country; a country that is now run by Corporations that ignore the working men and women that built this country. GE needs to wake up and strive to be the best…not the cheapest. We need to stand tall and stand together!”
