Union rejects contract for GE plant in Warren

Warren

Union officials are expected to meet with General Electric representatives Tuesday after union members at the Ohio Lamp Plant turned down a proposed a contract today.

“We’re going to meet and find out where we go from here,” said Scott Moore, president of International Union of Electrical Workers-Communications Workers of America Local 722, which represents employees at the plant.

“Its really out of our hands right now,” Moore said.

“We’re going to meet and find out where we go from here,”

The unemployment line forms at the old Southside Hospital on Oakhill, that is where you go from here.

Oh no, this isn't over. The old jerks think they've won, they voted to take food out of these families mouths just so they can retire a year or two early with what they *think* is a big severance (wait till Uncle Sam gets his cut!). No, this isn't over...

It was a bad deal anyhow. Ge never guaranteed it would stay open and it's closing was inevitable. Ge would of gutted out the plant and time the put in new machinery would take about a year and they would close in 2015 anyhow.
Btw how many of those ge and rg steel work who voted for Obama I'm wondering how that Obama economy and policies are working for you now.

It would never be cost efficient to produce the new product anyhow. I'm just curious if the multi million silver theft they covered up out there was a contributing factor in the plants closing. No one was held accountable except for a scape goat

Viatheright I am so sick of reading the same ol bs from you.

Did you see the numbers? No? Then shut up. Yes? Then you're in management there and should be fired.

Serious already it's obvious you work there and are in denial. Even a yes vote wouldn't have saved that sinking ship. Ge never gave a guarantee it would stay open. The workers theft of silver, $30 plus an hour for worker wages, managements misuse of funds and practically ghost jobs out there unfortunately led to their demise. Serious already we are sick of you already. Go get a life

Its always sad to see how this plays out, companies have been doing this for the last 30 years.They say if you will take a cut you might get to keep your job and feed your family, you start with 10,000 people and end up with 200 after 30 years of empty promises. It will never be enough.No retirement, No benefits, minimum wage- they will still close the doors when there's nothing left to give.Try to pull together and don't blame each other.

And more good jobs go to China so we can all buy cheap light bulbs from Wal-Mart.

All the "negotiations" with GE officials by Sen. Sherrod Brown to get a new product line and his good union friends of the IUE-CWA stab him in the back. These types of plants that are high-wage labor intensive are not going to survive when they can be off-shored for pennies. In case these union folk didn't notice, the days of unskilled labor making large paychecks are a thing of the '50's, like the ducktail and doo-wop. That is unless you have an uncle that can get you a job with the sheriff or the county engineer.

The OLDER union members voted this down because they want a supposed bonus when plant shuts down.

Older union guys screwing the younger union workers and the community that needs the jobs!! How do these back stabbing, selfish pigs sleep at night.
