President Trump: Order GE to Produce Ventilators

President Donald Trump and Defense Production Act coordinator Peter Navarro

Anheader

We are calling on President Trump to use his authority under the Defense Production Act to order General Electric (GE) to produce ventilators to save lives during this pandemic.

GE workers have the skills necessary to make ventilators and GE has the manufacturing capacity, but instead of producing this desperately needed equipment the company has laid off workers and factory space is sitting empty.

GE is one of America’s leading producers of ventilators and is so highly regarded in this field that other corporations are seeking and receiving help from GE to start their own production of ventilators, but these companies won’t be able to ramp up production to meet our country’s needs for weeks. We need more companies producing more ventilators now, and the quickest way for GE to do that is to put its skilled union workforce and excess capacity to work.

Sign the petition to ask Trump to instruct GE to produce ventilators.

GE is one of America’s leading producers of ventilators, but it is laying off workers instead of using its excess capacity to help meet our country’s needs as soon as possible. Please use your authority under the Defense Production Act to force GE to use its highly-skilled union workforce and underutilized facilities to produce ventilators and save lives during this pandemic.
