Just heard from someone whom I may not name, 300 full time staff would lose their jobs on October 6, or October 20, 2020. Packages are all made and HR is fully ready at this point.

I am from IOL... trying to know what's happening with other major producers and in our oil patch/industry...
anyone can summarize how things are with Husky ? planned cuts? number ?
the whole industry is grinded ...
We already let bottom 10 % go (excuse was performance) and it's happening quietly ...
Contractors are almost gone .... in this quarter we should learn from Exxon what will be Canada strategy ...they already announced cuts in Australia and Euro zone (1,600 positions in Euro by 2021)...
hope everyone survives these hard times...
stay safe and strong !
Don’t forget, those who have left already who were full time will not have their positions filled by a new candidate. These folks will be included in the numbers that will be let go.
Contractors having hours cut to 26 hours also contribute to numbers being cut. 6 contractors down to 26 hours counts towards 2 people for the headcount.
RT, AM, and WB from supply chain who left in the last 4 months for example won’t have their positions filled. These count toward the grand total.
Those screwing the pooch, side gigs during working hours should be let go. Modelling in Banff while showing ‘do not disturb’ should be the first ones to be let go.
Good luck everyone.
anything is happening tomorrow morning , Oct. the 6th ?
what's the 5,000 about ?
Where does the headcount of 5000 come from? I know there’s supposed to be 2400 in the Calgary building. It’s extremely hard to assess headcount because you never know if the numbers include contractors or not, and which locations.
what about Rose project. Still going to wait for government review? If they will be included, then mostly from outside of Calgary...
Frankly, 300 seems low. Headcount this spring was just north of 5,000. Even with contractors gone, 300 is less than 10%.
Husky never has the balls to announce its layoffs ahead of time even when literally every person in the company and the media knows about it. This is what's wrong with the management at Husky. They don't treat their employees like humans, let stress fester and k–l productivity, and then wonder what went wrong.
Terrible. Hopefully this will not happen. God bless
Will find out soon enough! The productivity is sh– with all of this!
Oh joy. Maybe it's time to just live off EI
