New deal will save jobs at GE

Local News

ERIE, Pa. — The union representing workers at Erie’s General Electric plant has reached a new deal with the company in an effort to save jobs.

According to GE, 22 non-production positions that had been slated to leave Erie will remain here if the new deal is approved by the union when it votes on Friday.

The new tentative agreement calls for a work schedule that aligns work schedules at the Erie plant with more efficient plants in the global supply chain.

A company statement also said the new agreement would empower hourly team leaders with coordinating work and building productivity teams by identifying and implementing cost-reduction opportunities.
