How’s it working out for everyone that stayed? Is merging the legacy utilities like mixing oil and water? Is it bringing out the best of both worlds or just caving to the lowest common denominator?
Topics regarding layoffs at Enbridge Inc.
So between the SSC, Category Management, and BP, how screwed up is SCM?
Finally reached the age of 53 with 32 years at the company. I can finally relax. If walked out guaranteed to be given a two year package which gets me to 55 and pension. Was always leaving at 55 anyways. Time to coast and mail it in from now on. ... — read more
I'm absolutely struggling on what the value of our internal IT has become. I find it incredibly difficult to navigate the waters to get anything done. I find the people unresponsive, the management does not sort out problems, but just lets them... — read more
The CER formerly NEB ruled against ENB Today concerning suggested policy changing to fixed demand - SHELL and SUNCOR seems to have won the argument on too much market control - So any ideas how we find the dividend and all the kings men
Is anyone else laughing their a– off at the new “Houseplant Policy”?! Are they going to walk around and take your plant away if the pot is 6.5” in diameter or if you have 3 small cactuses instead of the maximum of 2? While the rest of us worry about... — read more
EPIC’s 24’ line and and Plains Cactus II 26’ line started shipping to the Port of Corpus Christi 900,000 bpd. If line 3 & 5 ever get past legal hurdles will there be market for it?
Enbridge settles to union personell withe better pensions, benefits 2X overtime, increased STIP , etc etc. Then non Union gets screwed over on all the above. No reason to not to be unless you enjoyed less
Only a few directors and above to service the robotic drone workforce. OR is the Company almost at this BORG LIKE stage..... just needs a super robust ERP.
Just curious about what some thoughts are around taking stress leave. Is it a career k–ler? Is it a good idea? I’m miserable, I don’t want to spend my time in this dysfunctional workplace anymore. My sanity is on the line. I don’t know how much more... — read more
Someone’s head will roll. Should start at the top for buying Spectra’s POS infrastructure to start with. But the bosses will find somebody else to blame. No names. Roll or department will do. It will be done before preliminary NTSB comes out.
Safety used to be a big thing at Spectra, but the dividend comes first. Did Enbridge outsource the pipeline Integrity program or just do some cost savings by putting off inspections??? Let’s just give out stock options to the dead’s family and those... — read more
Seriously. Spectra acquisition is a disaster. Line 5 going to be shut down. Can’t finish line 3. Sandpiper and Northern Gateway flushed millions down the toilet. Share price dropping like a rock again.
I hate saying this, as I've been on both sides before and dont have anything good to say about unions. However, I think as a collective group, we should start this conversation. Might seem too late for a couple areas, but it's gone past the point of... — read more
Results from the employee engagement survey Enbridge earlier in the year are starting to flow out to the various business units and functional areas. I’m getting the impression that senior leaders are not taking the poor results seriously because... — read more
So what are thoughts or facts on whether or not Contact centres will be outsourced to Accenture? Will it happen, and if so when? Want truth or facts. Thoughts?????? — read more
Any groups come to mind?
I've attended all the Stand Up for Safety events over the years, and this last one was an utter pile of c-ap. In the Spectra days, these events were meaningful and focused on stories. There would be many people in the room tearing up over the moving... — read more
I wonder if all the old guys that were fired the first few go around should get together and work on this like the ford guys are doing
Energy Industry Rockstars.
Can anyone please confirm.
Is it just me, or are more people than ever leaving Enbridge? Is this a reaction to the latest reorganization? Have people finally had enough? — read more
How can we move more jobs to Chatham?
It’s been a while since I posted about how much I hate Corporate Enbridge, so here’s the latest thing that made me LOL with disgust... does anyone else find it hilarious that Inc. is going around talking-up their innovative and groundbreaking Uber... — read more
Look like layoffs are finally over after 2.5 yrs of pounding. any more to come?
The board has been dead for a while, so here's a topic - To the people who got laid off, would you ever go back to Enbridge if the job offer was good? Are there any current Enb employees who got laid off in the past? I was laid off some time ago, but... — read more
Now that everyone has had a chance to digest the changes, how are you feeling?
Enbridge moved a number of employees into supervisor roles this past week. They also moved a number of female supervisors out of frontline leadership roles. They advertise that they are a diverse company and encourage females to apply for these roles... — read more
Makes me sick. Al made over $12M US in 2017 with stock prices below $40 and 160 people let go in Ontario to get savings for Union merger. http://quote.morningstar.ca/Quicktakes/Insiders/ExecutiveCompensation.aspx?t=ENB — read more
What were raises in Your BU. Here in Edmonton we garnered around 3 percent.
It’s funny how there are so many posts and rumours before anything happens, then when it does like last week when 100 people were walked out it is relatively quiet on here. That just proves how many people who post on here just do it to stir things... — read more
I wish they would just get it over with so we can know where we stand. Regarding the rumors of layoffs by the end of March, I wanted to ask have they started already and if no is there any more precise info on when they could happen?
I see people reporting that the explanation for their layoff is mostly that their position is being eliminated. So what positions are we talking about?
I think a lot of the frustrating things that happen at Enbridge are caused by the weird management structure. The ratio of few people who actually do work vs people leaders is wacky. Managing 3-4 people does fill an entire 8 hour day, so to try to... — read more
It’s here. It’s happenening. Let the show begin. Let’s face it folks - no matter how knowledgeable you are, how great a leader you have been, how much you have contributed to the business AND how much importance you place on employee morale - these... — read more
I heard customer Care is being hit today! Anyone got information? I heard of two people so far in Thunder Bay????
It feels to me like Enbridge is intentionally fostering a nearly unbearable work environment for us to make us quit on our own. It's like they want to cut a certain number of people but don't want to pay severance if they can avoid it. I could just... — read more
A UGL employee, an EGD employee and member of SMT walk into a bar..... P.S. lighten up folks they can take away your jobs, but they cannot take you FREEDOM. — read more
If there were layoffs i would like to know what locations and how many people. Sure hope that the rumor that the layoffs would happen in this week wasn't true. Don't see any people posting, so that should be a good sign.
