GE Union Negotiations

Ensuring future success for GE and its employees

GE Union Negotiations

In June 2019, GE and its national unions will begin negotiating a new labor agreement to replace the current contract that expires on June 23. GE is committed to reaching a fair deal that continues to ensure both employees and the company can succeed in today’s increasingly competitive world.


GE understands the important contributions of all its employees and has worked hard to maintain good relationships with union employees and leaders at the local and national levels. Together, we have successfully negotiated 14 consecutive national contracts and many more local contracts over the past four decades.
