GE workers take to the streets on informational picket line

Local News

Union workers at General electric say that the company buying the plant, Wabtec, wants to roll back hard-earned benefits and take to the streets to protest.

Our own Scott Bremner was at the plant gates as the workers came out. 

The workers that hit the informational picket line told us they don’t want to start out their relationship with Wabtec on the wrong foot, but they can’t agree with the company demands either. Those workers hit the line to rally support in what is expected to be a key weekend. 

Workers will vote Saturday whether to authorize negotiators to call a strike if needed.  The sale is expected to go through Monday, and when it does, the current GE contract ends. 

The question is; what happens next?
