What do you expect, we are reporting tomorrow.
GE reports earnings tomorrow, looking pretty bad right now. This may be the next catalyst for sending more people out the door. After all, the CEO and BOD need their quarterly bonus.
Yes they are still letting people work OT. The company does not want to give the onion workers the impression that there is a layoff coming. The company and union want to keep people working. The Last layoff 3 layoffs I didn’t skip a beat on the OT... — read more

Now that everyone is talking about layoffs I’m a little anxious because I’d rather find a new job while I still have a job. On the other hand, I am so tired of this place that I secretly wish to get the package as soon as possible. I don't know... — read more

Did the investors pay for the Christmas party this year? They usually do make a considerable donation every year. For some reason the donation never showed up on the monthly reports for the membership.
CA, best move ever by the previous local union leadership. int'l deserves some kudos too as well for that recognizing the red herring that is the was the audit of the local union
Schenectady will have massive job cuts for 66 and 273. There is no work in 273 and 66’s work can be done anywhere.
Does anybody know what that was all about? Any truth to it?
Will the 301 investigation finally be over? It would be a great way to start the new year!
Is this true?
Hearing rumors this week that GE in Schenectady is hiring again after the smart early retirees jump ship. I don’t see it happening I see massive cuts coming.
General Electric has tried everything, except investing in American workers General Electric recently announced that the conglomerate will divide itself into three separate companies in the course of the next three years. CEO Larry Culp stated that... — read more
I’m in a big dilemma right now so I’d love to hear other opinions: how far until retirement do you think it’s worth staying here? I got a new offer that I would gladly accept, but on the other hand, I’m not that far from retirement so I don’t know... — read more
I have heard different opinions about splitting into 3 companies. I don't know about you, but I'm a little anxious about the effects of splitting. I don't know what you think, perhaps someone thinks the situation will be better after that?
Keep the circus going inside you, keep it going, don't take anything too seriously, it'll all work out in the end.
Someone mentioned bankruptcy here, so I wonder what you think about how close we are to the rock bottom? I do not believe that bankruptcy will happen, but I would prefer to work in a company where it is clear that it will not go bankrupt any time... — read more
The easiest way to get rid of the union would be shut Schenectady down. Work is slow. It don't make sense to have multiple gas turbine plants. It will all be consolidated in Greenville, SC
"A federal appeals court panel on Friday allowed President Joe Biden’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for larger private employers to move ahead, reversing a previous decision on a requirement that could affect some 84 million U.S workers." Looks like all... — read more

T rates were brought in, back door deals and broken promises. 2022 the real disfunction begins when LC keeps the gift of giving. The union will break after this next big round of cuts. We have next to no work in 2022 the 301 is going to crumble into... — read more
Sad to see the lack of interaction between the so called Union and it’s members in 301. All the rumors and definitely perceived lack of work does nothing to instill confidence in the work force. Add to that the blowhard BA walking the floor telling... — read more
Certain people are getting very concerned with bad choices. As they should be. Sooner or later things alway catch up with you.
Work slowdown in many areas of the plant I guess plenty of time for a Xmas party in each area. New year will bring new unemployment for the T’s.
So glad that the union pigs at that plant are getting what they deserve and that the pathetic white collar folks who were too unskilled or too scared to move on years ago will finally be forced to do so. Life in the real world with real world... — read more

So has this whole covid mandate changed? I was told my last day was December 8th and now it’s not? What’s going on?
What has Culp done besides shred the company for his own benefit? He has no interest in saving the company and has proven this with his recent actions. If you don’t believe it, look at the stock price, nobody trusts him anymore. Won’t be long before... — read more
