Return To Work In Erie

03.14.19 | Brandon Dickson

Workers at Erie's former GE transportation plant are back on the job under a 90-day agreement as negotiators try to reach agreement on a new contract.

The workers went on strike for nine days beginning February 25th, a day after completion of a merger between General Electric and Wabtec.

Under the 90-day deal, the union, which represents about 1,700 employees, has agreed not to strike.

Wabtec vowed no permanent layoff or plant closure.
