Bargaining Update Sunday June 21, 2015:

At 7:47 p.m. this evening (Sunday June 21st), the CBC unions and GE management reached a tentative contract agreement. The tentative agreement came shortly before the contract expiration deadline, and has been endorsed by all of the CBC union lead negotiators. “It was a hard fight to the end,” stated IUE-CWA President Jim Clark, “But Chairman Santamoor and I are confident that our delegates and members will be pleased with this agreement when they see the details.” The GE local delegates will travel to NYC over the next several days to review the tentative agreement with the bargaining committee and GE Conference Board staff. If the delegates vote in favor of the tentative agreement, all details will then be released to the membership and local contract votes will be scheduled. As always, final approval of the contract is based on membership approval.
