Is it February, is it March or will it be this month - it's really not that important to me anymore because I am certainly aware that no one is safe. I hope for the best but I always expect the worst. The only important thing is to always be... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at GE Aviation
I try to work harder than ever because I don't agree with those who say it's not worth it when it comes to layoffs, so they very often take their jobs for granted. Doing as much as I can is the only way to try to keep my job here until I can find a... — read more
Does anyone actually believe the BS excuse why we aren't getting forgings in Wilmington? I bet Mexico isn't having that issue.
It's funny hearing these Cnc programmers talking about how operators are paid way to much now because they just hit a button...maybe they should take pay cuts also because they don't actually write programs anymore with all the software they... — read more
I only now see on this forum that there’s a temporary layoff coming to Wilmington. Is that true? I just hope it’s a malicious rumor, and if it’s not, can anyone share a few more insights?
There are people on here bragging on how they are doing better and have moved on...This board is looked at and cared about mostly by folks who have gotten laid off or who are concerned about getting laid off. The folks who claimed that they are... — read more
Slattery said that the people who would be affected by another layoff would be told by the end of February... and we here are. Has anybody received a notice?
All these post are fake because General Electric Aviation is the only company that had layoffs. Google the rest of the airline industry...Notice no Layoffs....These are fake news
For those of you who are fortunate to keep your G.E. Aviation jobs please be thankful. It s—s on the other side. I work harder and make way less and I don't have a voice that anyone cares about. Don't take your job for granted unless you have a... — read more
Salary SPB employees across GE celebrate approval of their bonuses. Big bonuses handed out 2 years in a row. Of course no raises for LPB and PB levels 2 years in a row. Maybe they will take us for a spin in the new cars and boats they get. Cheer up... — read more
I just need to be called back. I keep hearing that we will but WHEN??? I have bills to pay and they seem to be stalling and changing the call back time frame. Does anyone have information?

So what’s the word on the layoff that was mentioned by Slattery last quarter? We were told by management last week that no layoff would be happening.... and we all know what happens when management says something won’t happen.
This keeps getting better lmao..gave Larry almost 50 million about to lay off more people and you now get a government backed 120 mill loan..lmao it's laughable at this... — read more
I didn't get laid off so I am about what matters to me ...If I get laid off then I will worry about that IF IT HAPPENS...but since it didn't I am only concerned about the BS management is trying to feed...They really don't know what's going on so why... — read more
This Edison works split in Engineering is going to be an unmitigated disaster. Splitting up the engineering team seems to be against the principles of lean to me. Is this new ceo on a mission to sell off the commercial business or something?
Must be nice being in management and having unlimited vacation and telling your hourly workers they must save vacation days for the yearly shut down and not have the option to take it unpaid and if you use it up before the shutdown you will face... — read more
Here in Rutland all hourly employees that were laid off got called back. Looks like from reading on this site Hooksett called back all laid off employees. Did other plants do the same thing? I’m wondering if they called everyone back across all... — read more
Aviation is offering older salary employees a VRIP. Plan is horrible compared to other divisions or even aviation's own layoff plan. The plan saves company a ton of money of course. I am very disappointed in GE and what it believes is fair.
One should be grateful for their job (especially in these difficult and challenging times) and try to always give one hundred percent of oneself. It’s a matter of morality. Is someone on this thread complaining about not getting overtime when you... — read more
Any plants giving out a Christmas bonus or gifts this year?
Back in April the top executives vowed to give up some of their pay to fund a program aimed to help GE employees affected by the coronavirus pandemic. Anyone heard what the plan is and/or whom may apply? Aviation is the hardest hit this past year... — read more

Years and years the buddy system at the top is over. Now is the time to excrement mediocre leadership that has provided lackluster results to all business matrices. Stay safe...BYE
This is the part where they shut the doors on a whole plant a shift work to other sites..hmmmm any guesses ?
Well we all seen the layoff confirming email from John. Looks like a rough road ahead next year. This should not be a surprise to anyone. Aviation way over-hired when things were looking good. Now we pay the piper. Good luck everyone.
Honestly, is there one person here who thinks we'll go through the next 6 to 12 months without major layoffs? The entire industry is collapsing! And it's going to continue on that way for who knows how long. If half of us still have a job after the... — read more
I commented earlier this year about being laid off and found a better company... well I was wrong about that. Not so much better! It was worse. Happy to say I looked back and accepted my job back at GE.
They are doing the next rounds of lay offs right now, all over the country. No news on how many total. And you all think GE is special, and no going to do the same?
The GM was in Hooksett saying all the people will be brought back, plus 200 more, and the work load will be at 2018 levels. The whole industry is in the toilet, and this is what he is telling people? Next week will tell a different story from what he... — read more
