IUE-CWA Local 84704 union workers in Bucyrus, OH are fighting to keep jobs and their plant’s LED light bulb line from being offshored. These members work at GE-Savant Lighting, where they make LED light bulbs exclusively for Walmart. This facility is one of the only residential lighting facilities left in the United States and we are working hard to keep it from shutting down. Walmart is driving this race to the bottom for wages and the environment, while our communities and our planet suffer, and good union jobs disappear.
