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.
Topics regarding layoffs at Enbridge Inc.
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?
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
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
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??
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
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
I question the intelligence of the people who put this monster in charge. There must have been signs of his instability, even before power got to his head. He has ruined this company.
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 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!
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
Wondering if anyone has specific information on what the benefits are like in retirement after you start your pension?
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
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
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
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?
Look at who’s left MP in Canada in the last 2-3 years! Staggering.
Do you think we will have too many people apply for early retirement or not enough? What is the number of people they want to retire?
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
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
Anyone know what ENB offers for severance under the normal layoff scenario? How much of a premium is the current offer?
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
I see it mentioned more and more here and I've heard a few people talk about it as a possibility. I honestly would prefer that to furloughs or layoffs, if it's truly temporary.
All EMT and ELT are meeting during the week to discuss cuts. Reviews are in process. Check the meeting slots that your ELT team has booked in common. The target that is to be achieved is from ~15% to ~20%. Keep an eye out!
Damn. Got my email. Guess i am essential. Denied the chance to apply for the packages
I’ve seen leaders attempt to get people to share pictures of ourselves working at home, supposedly to help make us feel more connected. Am I the only one who is suspicious that this is some kind of roundabout way to check-up on us? I mean, they made... — read more
Enbridge needs cheap labour in place before workers can strike in January.
What is this voluntary retirement and opportunities for reduced work all about?
Heard London USRs have been told what written they are losing and eat work they are transitioning too. Any one know first hand what's going on?
