Once again GE has hired union busters at this facility. It's not to hard to figure this one out.

The Auburn employees withdrew their petition just like last time.

CNBC reported last month, “ The company expects demand at its aviation unit to remain strong, resulting in more than 20% revenue growth and $3.8 to $4.3 billion operating profit this year.”

I think GE can absorb a substantial pay increase for the Auburn employees. I am sure Culpable would agree. Being a Harvard grad and all. ;)

Oops I may be wrong about that. I see Auburn is about the same population size as Greenville.

From my experience, the workers in very rural areas like Alabama, are mostly non skilled labor pulled off the street. The workers in Greenville are going to be more skilled. I'm surprised the Alabama workers make 50K but I am happy for them.

Wow. Vote the union in and get a $30 grand a year raise. Not bad

“Rawlinson said some workers in Greenville make $80,000 a year, while "we don't even make $50,000, and we make the same parts," she said. "We work just as hard as everybody else, so why can't we make the same amount of money?" “

Point well taken. A huge discrepancy like that is not “competitive wages in every community” but workers taken advantage of purposely.
