CWA Local 1101 and other Locals came out to support IUE_CWA 81359 and 8130 Jan 13, 2017

700 Members of IUE-CWA Locals 81359 and 8130 have been on strike at Momentive Manufacturing in Waterford, NY since November 2nd. They are fighting massive health care cuts for active workers, and to stop the complete elimination of health and life insurance coverage for retirees. Since Momentive was spun off from General Electric to big private equity firms in 2006, wages have been slashed up to 50% and pensions frozen. The Momentive workers are saying "enough is enough" The CEO of Apollo Global Management, which owns 40% of Momentive, is Leon Black, who is worth $5.4 billion. We need to demand that Leon Black, who has gotten rich destroying good jobs at companies like Momentive, a few hundred came out to tell Momentive CEO Jack Boss to go back to the table and negotiate a FAIR CONTRACT NOW!
