CBC Negotiations Day 5 – Friday June 7, 2019

The Union Coordinated Bargaining Committee (CBC) and GE continued discussions from yesterday on the process of subcommittees. The parties agreed that, due to the quantity of proposals still open, subcommittees would be formed for retirement and healthcare.

Each union within the CBC assigned main table members to participate in the subcommittees. Full participation allowed all unions within the CBC to continue to show solidarity and be engaged in the negotiation process.
Final proposals from the sub-committees will be dealt with at the main table.
