Thread regarding GE Power layoffs

It’s Obvious - No Hourly Layoffs For Schenectady in 2018!!

Based on the posts here I can see that many folks are wondering about hourly layoffs in 2018. GE will definitely not be having any hourly layoffs this year. Here is why:

Reason #1: Continuing to build product at a full rate pace even though both Steam and Generator are easily 6 to 8 months ahead of schedule requirements makes great business sense. I’m sure that our competitors are doing the same thing....right? Just keep making product for unsigned orders as this is obviously a recipe for success.

Reason #2: The hourly work force is staffed to appropriately support a 40 generator annual build plan. Schenectady might be able to actually secure 24 -26 generator orders by the time the 2018 schedule closes. With this said, I am quite sure that our senior management team will realize the lucrative business opportunity that exists by running the shop over staffed with assembly personnel by 40 to 45 percent throughout 2018 and 2019 (based on long term market forecast). As we all know, paying people to come to work when there is no work to be performed adds significant value to the business.

Reason #3: Six Sigma bucks are expected to overtake bit coin in the next week or two.....well not exactly.

Long story short to all our union brothers in Schenectady.....Don’t worry. It is obvious that everything is fine and there will be no reason for massive layoffs to occur in the next 3-6 months of 2018. I’m sure that any monetary damage that GE would incur from a contract breach would never outway the millions that would be saved by deep, long term employee head count reductions. It’s not like employees represent a massive expense and liability. Mix your favorite c---tail, drink liberally, and place your head back into that nice warm spot in the sand. No problems in Schectady!

Were there really lay offs this year???? I have been work and have not heard anything.

Maybe it was because I was in a hidden nest sleeping through my shift.........does that productivity too????

Although the sarcasm is funny, the reality of the facts regarding management of the factory is tragically spot on. Regardless of what anyone is told, the numbers don't lie. The supposed 130 hourly reports to be cut will be only the tip of the iceberg. We are far past the point of TLOW's being offered. To all my union brothers and sisters, this guy is right about the majority of us with our heads in the sand thinking "I'll be OK".

I came to GE Schenectady seven years ago with pride to work for GE and excitement about all the 'air support' that a strong labor union was going to give me if times got bad.

Seven years later I am embarrassed of what GE has become as a company, demotivated by an incompetent plant management team, and tired of excuses from a well funded union board that in reality is almost completely ineffective in any real sense.

My advice is get out on your own terms as I hope to.

Oh, and don't buy that truck any time soon. ;)

Good luck this year all. What are Six Sigma Bucks?

I think this person is pretty funny.....and on track with the reality of the factory. By the way - I wouldn’t purchase that truck any time soon.

Thank god. I can stop worrying and buy a new truck! I knew everything would be OK. Thanks for the post!.....And thanks to management for doing such a great job to get us out of this mess - especially our awesome plant manager and senior staff. True visionaries.

He was being sarcastic.....GEeeez

You are an idiot! 130 layoffs on the 19th and 273 plant manager says reevaluate in April or may for more. So this article is false! If your that ignorant than good luck in the real world!
