UAW and Big 3

We all see the headlines regarding the Union corruption. Is it me or does the timing, right as the contract is set to expire, seem a bit coincidental? Did the Big 3 plan to expose this in order to diminish the Union as viable in the future. Do... —  read more

Strike?

How noticeable will a strike be at the Tech Center? Not much work in a long time for PPO. It’s disgusting to see so many shiftless people day in and day out pretty much doing nothing. Skilled trades? A lot (certainly not all) are mostly skilled at... —  read more

IT was Savaged

I was in IT for 34 years (EDS, HP, GM). I am still in contact with my former co-workers and what morale was there is now completely gone. And they are so overwhelmed with the workload it is ridiculous. A staff of 12 was cut to 7 in our area. I... —  read more

Is the T1 selling?

Is the new pickup selling well? I see a lot of advertising for it with rather large discounts, it seems like they shouldn’t have to discount a brand new vehicle so heavily. It also seems like the Silverado is consistently being beaten in sales by... —  read more

End of severance

Well, as of today the severance has ended for everyone. Anyone have any thoughts they’ve wanted to post but were waiting until the severance was done? GM has nothing to hold over any of us anymore.

frustrated

I will NEVER buy a GM car again. The decisions that were made to layoff so many have changed lives forever and made those employees feel so down and taken for granted after so many years of being dedicated and hard working employees. I am sure none... —  read more

GM is dependent on employee+family/friends purchases

GM is absolutely dependent on an emotional connection or implied support obligation to sell vehicles. Not just by the current recently-disappeared professionals, but by their extended families over multiple generations. That's why GM didn't have... —  read more

Possible GM Financial Layoffs

Per a friend who is close to the numbers, GM Financial has lower earnings year over year despite having a larger balance sheet and is way below their MTP budget. Layoffs could very well happen there this year.

So, does anyone think GM is still, or is ever going to be, the Workplace of Choice? I wonder if they’ll ever conduct that survey again.

Why is GM IT moving jobs to Ireland?

And cutting down people in Warren. GM has left IT in Randy’s hand and he is taking IT out of Detroit piece by piece. Ireland, why? Contrary to this Ford has its IT centrally and strategically in Dearborn for ever. What do we get in Ireland that we... —  read more

Why don’t GM cars sell?

Enough with the high belt lines and technology that nobody wants and doesn’t work very well. Take the entertainment system in my 2018 Traverse - you need a PhD to figure it out! In a Honda Odyssey - it “just works”. Quit investing in self driving... —  read more
