Topics regarding layoffs at Pratt and Whitney
Sounds like the 2nd Stimulus Bill will include airline relief, which currently expires Oct 1st. Do you think a 2nd Stimulus Bill saves some Pratt jobs?
Hard to get an answer from anyone I don’t think anyone knows anything
a friend in J building said a shipment of 6,000 boxes came in this week, he asked a shop steward about it and he said each laid off person gets 3 boxes ea. Expect 2,000 gone from east hartford by the end of the week. makes sense also since Thursday... — read more
After you land most get off and forget about it. A few have a total change of direction and the rest muddle through until the next flight.
When does "IT" occur? Here are some facts: RTX MUST clear the books by end of year; given that the WARN act requires 60 calendar days of notice or 60 days of compensation that means the latest is end of October; seems some VPs are having All Hand... — read more
After 30 years service, I was walked out by my manager for bad PFT, manager was clueless, HR was useless. A good manger will work with his team to coach and help develop their skills. I am very sorry about the union hourly employees Layoff news. Life... — read more
Can they just get this over with? My sleep has been total c-ap.
It would make sense to offer a VSP without the age restriction, so the people who did not qualify because of the age can take advantage and company would have to fire less people who want to stay.
Has P&W ever laid off this many people before in one single layoff event? Even if they have, I'm guessing this will be P&W's largest white collar layoff ever. It loos like it will hit the salaried population the hardest. My condolences to all of... — read more
The company got expensive, the Wrap Rate (person doing the work's salary combined with the overhead charges) made winning new work difficult. Each engine developer / manufacturer (RR/GE/PW) has smart folks and management. It comes down to who can... — read more
Just found out - confirmed that yesterday UTRC in EH had layoffs. Anyone else heard that ?
So what is your guess for when the axe is going to fall ? Tomorrow last Friday of the quarter ? Wednesday the last day of the quarter and pay day? Or some time in early October like many are saying ?
I am a ME and we have been working from home every other day since April. The days we are home we don't do anything except check email. Most of us don't even bother The furloughs helped us at least appear productive. Now without that extra day off... — read more
This company has built up so much waste in the past 10 years, and specifically in the last 8 months. All these support groups "working from home" such as ACE, OpEx, Enterprise Capacity, the list goes on. People working ~30 hours a week throughout... — read more
I always felt the job market for the aviation industry was somewhat secure, but this past year has proven me wrong. Actually, with the downturn in economy, I don’t think any job is safe anymore. And to be honest, that petrifies me - considering that... — read more
Let’s not lift a finger for these fat cat f—ing bureaucrat, rolling-in-the-dough, drinking our blood sweat and tears, inconsiderate, lying “leaders” and see just where their precious stock price ends up. Why do they make thousands for every... — read more
Do you already know what you'll do if your name is on the list? I know I should be using this time to prepare so I'm not "caught with my pants down," but I honestly don't know where to start. I updated my resume, but can't find any places to submit... — read more
It sounds like Columbus Forge Blades is slowly and quietly "firing" people. It's been a few people each day. Sounds like this is how they're handling the "layoffs". Not with one "rip the band-aid off" event. So far we haven't seen anyone fired... — read more
I assume our managers and bosses know who they want to can right? Definitely a form of favoritism no? Am I wrong in saying they have a mental list already?
This is becoming ridiculous! Just rip the f—ing bandaid off already!
Think about... 15,000 people. Many have families, spouses, kids, parents. Plus, think about businesses that benefit from those 15,000 having jobs, local restaurants, gas station... I'd say this round of cuts will easily impact 100K people somehow. I... — read more
the real news will come from leaders very soon. I'm sure that the conference calls are already out on who is cut, but it shouldn't be THAT much of a surprise. Brace for impact in one way or another before the end of this quarter.
I'm pigeonholed in my current position. I've applied to now 14 internal positions in the past year (including Collins and legacy Raytheon) and have been passed up for every single one. Not to mention, the site location I'm based at s—s (not... — read more
Just a rough estimate on the cost to keep 15,000 workers on the payroll. A week here and a week there it adds up to real money. Gotta save for the 4th quarter dividend of 712 million. That bill is coming due soon.
I know nothing is probably going to happen before tomorrow at the earliest but I still had trouble sleeping last night. This whole wait is driving me insane and rises my stress levels exponentially. How in the world are we supposed to remain... — read more
They went and overhauled the whole system for HR and benefits, if you have access while its down, you are probably safe. If you do not, that might be a bad sign. I have a feeling they went thru and began changing access to lay people off.
Check out the Bloomberg story above. It's good to be KING.

I wonder if with covid and social distancing if they will just call us on the weekend to lay us off.
That 15k number is from the numbers for layoffs they, upper leaders, came up with during all of August. They’ve known about this and have been planning since early August. The presidents and VPs have known and are in constant contact with a Hayes and... — read more
I was told about a month ago that 9/18/20 was supposed to be the big day for layoffs, at least for the P&W Columbus site. Does anyone have first hand accounts of anyone actually being let go today? If so, please include # of people, their... — read more
In the past day rtx corporate doubled the number of layoffs. It was not communicated down to the RC and PW so the division leadership was caught off guard and as of this morning and r probably in a scramble to increase the headcount reduction in an... — read more
I am a blue badge employee in engineering and have friends/coworkers working in various department at pratt. We all know about lay offs but I found out that pratt hired people this month and last month in digital technologies. If they are planning to... — read more
Do we think digital technology will see cut too? We are 230 people supporting our global workforce of 33,000. Infant we hired 3 new blue badges last month.
As an somewhat long term employee with some common sense, they will not say a word until the day you walk in, and bring you into a room for a meeting. It’s Corp, and it’s how they address it. Just be prepared to lose your job, but if you make it... — read more
Can anyone comment if direct employees exempt or will also be included ?
