Help Make Corporate Greed the "The Biggest Loser" at NBCU!

Jim Joyce

Subject: Help Make Corporate Greed the "The Biggest Loser" at NBCU!NBCU, and its corporate parent General Electric, are playing a new reality game with union employees and shareholders alike.

The game is "Corporate Greed", and the goal is to make those who contribute to the success of the company into "The Biggest Losers", while senior executives and corporate board members line their own pockets.

In current negotiations with its workers, NBCU is pushing to change the 75 year relationship NABET-CWA has had with company.

The contract expired on March 31, and union negotiators are working to reach a new agreement, but NBCU is insistent on making draconian changes. The quality of these jobs and associated benefits would be significantly reduced, and would greatly impact union workers in New York, Chicago, Burbank, andWashington, D.C. who have been loyal to the company throughout their careers.

Click on the link below to tell GE CEO Jeff Immelt and NBCU Chairman Jeff Zucker that NABET-CWA members deserve a fair contract at NBCU and that workers and shareholders will not be the "The Biggest Losers" at GE!;
