You're spreading the pain to the masses. It still seems like a regressive shift, those at the bottom of the pay scale feel the pain more. I am thinking correctly on this? Does the company do furloughs, or educational sabaticals, or anything short... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Enbridge Inc.
I want to work at Enbridge. What advice do you have for applications and interviews?
- https://blog.careerminds.com/voluntary-layoffs The article above is a step by step on going the voluntary-layoffs route. According to the article the only downside is not getting enough volunteers. No where in the article does it even fathom... — read more
I am sitting on the side lines and keep reading terms such as "People Person", fascinating. One might think that a superior being ( some benevolent some not ) has to deal with subhuman mortals. VWO, BOFF, BIFF, S___ Show, I____t, – just a few... — read more
Both seem to go round and round in circles / ovals, again and again and everyone just can't wait until the inevitable crash happens ( the main reason to watch ).
Is there any good news coming out about Enbridge? Politicians in US shutting down functioning pipelines and delaying projects. Overall demand for oil is questionable for the near future, we freight oil, no product to move no revenue. FYI -... — read more
It was already bad when I left three years ago, so I can only imagine what the situation is like right now. And from reading the posts here it's obvious that things haven't improved much since then, quite the opposite. I guess I made the right... — read more
now with DAPL being shut down, potentially for 13 months thats going to impact our bottom line significantly
I see a lot of complainers here. Why??? Enbridge is still employing you. You still have a good paying job, so why the gripe? Consider yourself fortunate in these trying times. I was worried about my living situation when COVID-19 hit. What if... — read more
Two generic emails and a premature removal from Workday. Thank you for the lovely send-off. Seriously, good luck to all. This better have meant something to those left to carry on.
So do the math. Line 5 brings in $1.5 million dollars per day. Give or take. How long before this shutdown starts to hurt. What if the boobs in Michigan succeed in making it permanent? Who’s head should roll for this cluster - of fun?? Vern?
OEB throw out he carcass and all the big birds peck at it, then the little birds after. good money for all
Does anyone know if there will be another VWO opportunity later in the year if more cost savings are needed? I didn’t see anything in the Q&A on this question.
What does everyone think will happen next? VWO is done with the exception of those that are leaving later than a June 26. COVID is raging in the US so the reopening is in danger in many states which may hurt oil demand again. Will there be... — read more
Can anyone ever remember a new ERP coming close to functioning as promised!! Yet, they will still probably do more layoffs to justify the cost. What are the supposed deliverables and which departments will take the hits??
Personally, I feel Enbridge is hypocritical in claiming to be sympathetic to Native American issues, while at the same time were complicit in the abuse of protesters at Standing Rock. Does anyone share this belief? Does anyone else have difficulty... — read more
Please wash your hands after touching everything on this floor (even with covid!). For whateve strange reason, several men on the floor refuse to wash their hands after using the restroom. Late last year/early 2020 there was a severe outbreak of pink... — read more
Shall we talk numbers chaps. Oct 2016 - 17200 total employees June 2020 - 10700 Total employees So enbridge lost Approx 6500 employees (almost 38-40 percent of workforce) in 3.5 yrs and had 4 reorgs. Very grim record indeed!! If you were... — read more
This company is lethal with nepotism . It’s a family and friends, sh– show. Not what you know but who you’re related to or having an affair with. Harassment, is tolerated and swept under the carpet!
https://www.cbc.ca/news/business/vacation-days-colliers-project-leaders-1.5601141 Forcing employees to record vacation, but not really giving them the time off is illegal.
Somehow this team keeps delivering great results in spite of being positioned within a disfunctional IT operating model full of inefficient processes, and a company that funds its dividend increases through cost cutting measures alone. Very few... — read more
Has any other company ever offered such a ridiculous mass exodus and then reject people who agree to voluntarily leave? Do you know what it's like to have a detailed package presented that allows you to plan for a change, psychologically commit to... — read more
There is no way this stops at now. The economy is much worse than when this was planned, and this “lottery” did nothing to weed out the poor performers, or others that the organization wants out. The slow quiet reduction that was happening before the... — read more
Wondering if anyone has specific information on what the benefits are like in retirement after you start your pension?
I see that Enbridge Inc has hired the former Bank of Canada governor Peloz 2 only two days after he retired from his post as governor They are giving him a hefty salary. Something very fishy smelling here and very unethical I bet, regardless if it... — read more
The lucky ones who were given an opportunity to leave on their own terms and who have accepted. I'd have given anything to be in that group. And I have a question for those who didn't accept it. Why? What is keeping you here? Why in the world... — read more
This is Enbridge after all. Do you think they'll stick to the whole "no layoffs thanks to VWO" or will they turn around in a few months (or even weeks) and say that we need layoffs after all?
AM just emailed that because enough of us applied for VWO, there won't be a company wide layoff. As one who is not in a position to apply for VWO, I want to thank those who did. Your sacrifice is helping me keep my job, a job I and my family... — read more
AM said today that enough of us applied for one of the VWO programs that company wide layoffs will be avoided. As someone who is not in a position to apply for VWO, I want to thank all who did. Your sacrifice is helping me retain my job. Thank... — read more
Look at who’s left MP in Canada in the last 2-3 years! Staggering.
All this corona work from home and I really don’t have much to do since April. I check my email a few times per day, but my boss doesn’t give assignments or deadlines any more since April. My boss can’t handle anything that makes him look bad, so... — read more
Everyone has to take a 3% wage decrease effective immediately
I can't imagine what it will feel like if you volunteer for retirement and you don't get it. I know its legal because they wrote it that way but it seems cruel and most certainly advantageous for Enbridge to pick and choose who they want to let go... — read more
