GE has arrived at a crossroads - and our natural resources are at stake.

GE can choose to engineer and manufacture the green technologies of the future in America while creating good union jobs – or to fully destroy the legacy of American ingenuity that their empire was built upon.

Our future cannot be secure until it is sustainable, and as an industry leader in manufacturing, GE has a responsibility in America to create jobs for the green economic revival.

Our national security infrastructure and the future of our communities is dependent on energy security. By harnessing natural resources, GE can build a pathway towards creating tens of thousands of good, clean, and green jobs right here in America.
The health of our ecosystem, clean water supply, rainforests, and communities is on the line. The extensive environmental consequences of GE’s offshoring disproportionately impacts disadvantaged communities of color. Until GE prioritizes a sustainable supply chain, the most precious natural resources of these communities will continue to suffer long-term damage.

As GE has offshored tens of thousands of domestic manufacturing jobs, it has dangerously lengthened their supply chain, creating a rapidly spiraling carbon footprint. GE’s focus on prioritizing cost cutting in their labor sources over sustainable manufacturing practices is creating long-term impacts to our ecosystem.

GE has an opportunity to bring a better future to our communities and our planet by being a trailblazer for clean jobs and environmental good at home. By harnessing our natural resources, including clean wind energy, GE can become an industry leader and pioneer the creation of tens of thousands of good, clean, and green jobs at home.

What we're fighting for

GE workers are ready to be part of America’s green economic revival, and to secure GE’s comeback to become even more productive, efficient, and profitable while limiting its environmental impact. Globalization of the green economy must include American cities and workers.

Together, we can save our jobs and our planet.

GE’s offshoring of American jobs creates ripple effects that reverberate in our communities and have deep impacts on our planet. GE’s business model has become increasingly over-reliant on labor offshoring, effecting a dire impact on our environment.

In Schenectady at the GE power plant, the highly skilled workforce builds turbines that power our national electric grid. The workers in Schenectady stand ready to join in green manufacturing production as well – building the wind turbines for the future of our green economy.

This is a good example of how the company can re-imagine their products while also reinvesting in green jobs for the community and the planet. GE manufacturing must include a healthy mix of traditional power and steam turbines as well as green manufacturing that minimizes impact on the environment.

A breakthrough for U.S. wind power

The Biden administration has promised to build up the offshore wind industry, and this week it began to make good on that pledge by granting final approval to the nation’s first large-scale offshore wind farm, about 15 miles off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard, Mass.
