Corning is handing out letters at the diesel plant laying off tons of employees by seniority. They have pulled older employees from other plants to give them other people’s jobs. Never buy anything of value if you work for this company. You commit to them, they drop you like you didn’t matter. They lay off started today. People will lose their jobs going from 27 plus dollars an hour to 500 dollars a week on unemployment, still over taxed through Corning Inc.

Layoffs at Corning Advanced Optics in Keene, NH as well.
Informed Tuesday morning (Nov 8 2022). Ushered out the door immediately thereafter - no chance for for goodbyes / handshakes / hugs to respected colleagues. Expected a little more class, to be honest.
Anyone have any further info on the Life Sciences 'workplace reduction' we were infomred of today? Have affected people already been told, or is the process ongoing?
Any news about potential layoffs? Lots of projects are on hold at the moment.
The digital transformation indeed can wring a lot water out, not seeing much solid impact after so many years, still doing a bunch proof of concept sales.
Corning is asking the Remote Work employees to come back to office immediately. Anyone knows what is going to be the the consequence of not complying with this?
This layoff and reorganization is being done by seniority, per your collective bargaining agreement. As another member of USW local 1000, I can tell you this is being done by the book and correctly. It would seem you don't have a lot of seniority based on your comments. You will make it back to work. This is typically the time things slow down. Just relax.
The only thing I’ve seen this far is big flats slowed down and they sent their people over to diesel so they could get rid of all the temps. All temps go their papers This week. Monday will be the last day for all temps at diesel for now.
Any layoffs planned for the Modeling and Simulation group (Sam Zoubi & Gautam Meda's group)?
