General Electric will require all U.S. employees to get vaccinations for COVID-19 by Dec. 8. Disclosed to company employees late last week, the move by the Boston-based conglomerate aligns the company with the White House's Safer Federal Workforce... — read more
I hear more and more that people who have been in GE for a long time are less marketable, not only because they are older, but also because their skills are no longer sharp. Why do some people think that the problem is not only with the employees and... — read more
Or if they got laid off because the workload is down. How many can really get a job making this much for what you do? How many can get a job like this if they got fired over utilizing your freedoms to refuse the jab? Look at all the losers scared in... — read more
I didn’t go and would not waist my time with that rubbish and lies from the hall. I had better things to attend to. Any hints or vibes from the hall on the layoffs that are coming? And how many? Or just a bunch of I don’t know for answers? — read more
Well that’s the rumors going around. All the t rates are running around lost like DX the old wrestling group. Playing games on people coming up with du-mb ideas to save their unskilled jobs. Nothing can save an unskilled T’s job at this point. Going... — read more
The 301 does not provide Union backing or job security. The Union allows the company to change negotiations mid contract to save jobs for a few months. This Union is in the company’s pocket because at the end of an agreement the layoff still happens... — read more

I hear more and more often my colleagues saying that they will no longer work hard, that they only work the bare minimum now and that they would even like to be laid off. Really? Do people really not care about their jobs here anymore? When I... — read more
Just curious as to who controls this site? Seems like anytime I talk about the scumbags we work with, especially union delegates, my posts get deleted. Just trying to tell the people the truth about their so called "union brothers."
We’ve come up with a cute commercial and catch phrase - all in hopes of swaying GE to bring Jobs back from over seas. Little late , Huh ? This should have been done prior to work leaving, at the very first sign of the company considering moving work... — read more
GE needs to go to mandatory COVID vaccines for all employees to protect all the overweight, out of shape employees. It will also help thin the herd instead of having to do layoffs. And since it will be a volunteer quit, the company doesn't have to... — read more
Our dues working hard to keep American jobs safe in Schenectady. They are going to record the processes and ship the videos and jobs and equipment over seas. Union dues paid off on this one It’s a done deal. Write ups will stick with more job loss... — read more
Is the question of the day. How many knew of this on the floor? Not me!
Did the union agree with the company to put cameras at all work station? Is the union going to say it’s for our safety?
Many say it’s bad, the T’s are always complaining. Nothing with change here GE is a great company and has been for over 100 years. GE brings good things to life. GE brought in the T rate scale and brought all the T’s from making $10hr up to $60k-$80k... — read more
Another day of me not having my materials to do my job and standing around and getting paid for it. My Guess is I have to get use to it seeing how job cuts are on the way. I’m sure the union has a clause to allow people from 66 to bump into 273. — read more

The final gas turbine validation test is about to begin. The facility will be mothballed in early spring. GE leadership can’t wait to cut salaries. Cutting heads is what they live for. It’s their fetish!
The union knows that the company wants to cut jobs at 273 and 66. VRIP talk always means layoffs. Power is flat get ready! Union is saying 65 VRIPS in 273 and 66. Means 130 are hitting the streets in the next wave of cuts in Schenectady. The... — read more
Down 16+% since split. Not a peep out of Culp or Gardener (Trian Partners).....Hmmmm. Another MASSIVE lose for Nelson Peltz.
The VRIPS being talked about is an extreme unheard of number. The last time a big number like this was talked about was back in 89. A lot of people lost their jobs back then. Well if this VRIP number is right and say if 15-20 qualifying members take... — read more

Only now that I have started to look for a new job more actively do I notice all the negative effects of the long-term unemployed here. What worries me the most is skill obsolescence. I know it’s mostly my fault because I didn’t think about... — read more
