GE has arrived at a crossroads - and our natural resources are at stake.
The health of our ecosystem, clean water supply, rainforests, and communities is on the line. The extensive environmental consequences of GE’s outsourcing 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 outsourced 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.
As seen on:
Together, we can save our jobs and our planet.
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.
