Revised: Union Negotiations Update with Paul Lalli, June 24, 2019

We’re excited to announce that GE and the Coordinated Bargaining Committee (CBC) concluded negotiations with a new proposed 4-year collective bargaining agreement by the Company.

Paul Lalli, head of labor negotiations for GE, had this to say:

“We have achieved our goal of creating a fair deal that provides good wages and meaningful benefits for our employees while addressing the unique challenge we face today to return GE to a position of strength. The new contract is endorsed by union leadership and creates a path forward for both employees and the company to succeed in today’s increasingly competitive world.”

IUE-CWA President Carl Kennebrew and IUE-CWA GE Conference Board Chairman Jerry Carney are recommending approval of the agreement by the IUE-CWA delegates. Also, the other CBC unions have approved sending the proposed agreement to their membership for a ratification vote.

The ratification votes are expected to take place by July 11, 2019.
