Bargaining Update

Sunrise Movement

Workers at the Sunrise Movement, a youth-led movement organization advocating to stop climate change and create millions of American jobs, unanimously ratified a bargaining agreement. “As workers across the country are realizing their power and forming unions, Sunrise Movement management and staff are proud to have reached an innovative and rigorous bargaining agreement with the CWA. We are thankful for all of the workers and bargaining members whose vision and drive in these last nine months have made this a reality,” said the organization and CWA in a joint statement. The workers, members of CWA Local 1180, negotiated a contract with groundbreaking protections against discrimination and innovative time off and leave provisions.


General Electric

Workers at General Electric’s (GE) factory in Lynn, Mass., members of IUE-CWA Local 81201, secured a new tentative agreement to increase pay and stop management from delaying raises for 540 workers. The new agreement reforms a wage progression system implemented by the company in 2016. The system could have forced workers to wait ten or more years before being eligible for the top pay rate at the facility, regardless of skills or productivity. The agreement comes at a critical time for the workers in Lynn and other locations as they struggle with rising inflation and fight back against GE’s plan to break up the company. “As we prepare to negotiate our national union contract for GE workers across the country, this sends a powerful message to the company that we can organize effectively against stagnating wages and keep good jobs in our community. We are not stopping here, the goal is a fair National Contract that puts money where it belongs, in workers’ pockets, and brings taxpayer-funded work back where it belongs in our domestic U.S. manufacturing facilities,” said IUE-CWA Local 81201 President Adam Kaszynski.
