Thread regarding Cummins Inc. layoffs

Did anything change for the better after the layoffs?

The meaning of layoffs is not part of their vision to fix this company and to improve things, instead behind the cuts always stands their greed.

After people were laid off, what changed here? Is it any better or is it quite the opposite - worse here?

Before Cummins I’ve worked at a company with very poor management, but Cummins is the next level.

They are trying to roll all unions into Corp benefits, and pay for performance. so they may be sweeting the deal with a larger initial raise? Also they are recruiting tech like mad now after laying off hundreds before Covid

The workforce becomes more "diverse" after each layoff. That's a good thing because DIVERSITY IS OUR STRENGTH, right?

Sorry I meant OCU not IBEW, but that does make sense. I made comment that they could quite easily get contractcors to do the mechanical and instrumentation work for all the production and R/D cells. Two ways they can do it, contractor bring in their own people and the hourly train them while being let go and their bonus or whatever is pursuant to them training. Or they are told one day that their jobs are redundant and that you have to leave today but if you want to still work here you will have to be hired by the new contractor at less pay and less benefits. Just sign up for the contractor today and come back to work tomorrow, the paperwork will already be integrated into the contractor and they will pay you.

And let me guess, those 25 out of a hundred will be a scattering of admin and supervisors and a handful of level 5 techs and admin who will be on mandatory overtime and will be support for the contractors if something goes awry.

Their continual plan is to globally outsource as many employee roles to suppliers/contractors as possible; much less salary/benefits. In an office of 100: 25 at most will be employees, all the rest supplier/contractor status. It’s all cost cutting; not profitable growth.

Why did they give so much money for the hourly techs starting out (about a 6 dollar raise) and other perks in the IBEW contract if the are having financial problems? You have to wonder what is their game plan, I heard that Cummins has a 5 year plan and the contracts both IBEW and DWU are 5 year. Do anyone know what their plan is?

Layoffs are still continuing this year. I witnessed 4 RIFS. It’s never gotten better.
Continual downsizing and restructuring is a clear sign of market loss.
