FORT EDWARD, N.Y. – Union members plan to picket at the
General Electric plant in Fort Edward on Wednesday as the CEO, Jeffery Immelt
The 200 employees who may lose their jobs when the plant
closed to move to Clearwater, Florida, are fighting the closure. The plant is scheduled to close in September
The employees, who are union members of United Electrical,
Radio and Machine Works of America Local 332, will be in front of Rutland's
Paramount Theater at 4:30 p.m. as the CEO will prepare to speak at 5 p.m.
GE officials have told NEWS10 ABC that the move to Florida
will lessen costs on the business. This
proposed closure is also subject to a 60-day decision bargaining period between
GE and the union. During this time, the
company will consider alternative proposals.
If the company would move forward with closing the plant, 178 hourly
workers and 20 salaried employees would be affected.
The first meeting between UE Local 332 and GE took place on
September 26 at the Fort Edward plant.
