Haier Co. (formerly GE Appliances)

Negotiations continue for a contract covering 3,900 workers, members of IUE-CWA Local 83761, at Appliance Park in Louisville, Ky. In June, China-based Qingdao Haier Co. finalized the purchase of the GE Appliances operation.

Concurrent negotiations are being held at the main Appliance Park table, with IUE-CWA National and Local bargainers, and the Appliance Service bargaining table, with coordinated bargaining by IUE-CWA, the IBEW, Machinists, UAW, and United Electrical Workers.
