This is where it all started our jobs are safe and secure for many years to come. Our union leadership will do everything they can to keep work in 273 and 66. This campus we work in will be here for years to come. I’m voting yes to the contract regardless I’m grateful to be working here in 273 it keeps me ego elevated and my s Sense of worth in corporate America. So many people are complaining all the time. We have a good Competitive healthcare insurance and better than average wages.

: @aonf+1jr4uxso- this response must be from one of those special T’s. No brains get ready for your layoff slip. Once managers start to go you know your next.
The original poser is very "pretty?
Nothing you can do about it! Show up every day, bow down to your opps leader, collect your paycheck, start over again next week. The end is near, nothing you can do about it 😮💨
@4ivm+1jr4uxso- what a real Corp t bag
All the working folks can do is the best job they can do at high efficiency (i.e. work constantly, whistle to whistle!), with high quality (i.e. no worker induced defects). The global market for power generation equipment determines the number of jobs needed, which is at a low level and not coming back anytime soon. Schenectady needs to have a workforce that is flexible and can change with the market needs and any products GE decides to put in the factory. That is all the workers can control.
@3adl+1jr4uxso you sound like you have the " I got mine so sc--w everyone else" attitude that was common with the " D rates" when I worked there.
Look at the likes of this post 4. Look at the dislikes 20=4/20 every one here should sit back with one and wait for it.
I here crickets
@3mxa+1jr4uxso What do you expect from a bunch of unskilled T’s who came from the fast food assembly line? The D’s know they voted yes because the are making a great wage with our pensions. Now this is just limping along till the big restructuring to pad the books. Close to retirement for me good luck 273
When I worked at GE 273 most of my coworkers were the type that would tell you they voted no, but when they tallied up the votes in the last contract it was like 80% voted yes. Don't know if it's still like that up there but alot of guys that talk the talk but don't walk the walk
Yes I here the rumors too and a big layoff is in the very near future. Enjoy the ego while you still have it. The pride and ego will burst at the hands of the almighty GE hand.
- Contaminated property won’t sell? Myth, all the other contaminated plants have sold/changed hands 2) Problem is due to workers not doing their job? Tell me, whats the reason one keeps a pattern of postings to a whole workforce? Need of defection or gaslighting here? 3) Fact, not enough workers left to make a big difference with GE. As it dwindled in numbers so did your strength. Stand strong, don’t have to be nice just smart, leave ur pride and ego at the door, vote on 1 year contract weighing what’s best for you, ur personal welfare vs. suffering the factual consequences. What happened in last 4 contracts is behind us now, no repairing it today with stupid retaliation and crazy overreached demand requests u know GE won’t do, be patient, articulate and sense able, you’ll be okay.
@2ryx+1jr4uxso. "above average on wages", you're either a T-rate that had no ambition to improve your position or a T-rate that's lucky to have been hired during GE's no skills required hiring period, Good Luck keeping a job after the split.
@2yid+1jr4uxso- the company already has all the power they sign our check. And B if we want to keep our jobs we will play nice. Expect a 1 year contract and Bo big raises. Expect competitive health care. We are above average on wages as it is. Also it has been the trend for the last 4contracts. Now look from the past practice where we are today. To where we were 4 contracts ago. Sounds like your drinking all of what the union and company are dishing out.
@1acd+1jr4uxso That's never going to happen, why would the union give all the power to the company?
T?? Ha I'm so rich. Like more than an EB.
@1byi+1jr4uxso- Another genius of a post from another unskilled T
Out of touch????? Ha the kids at Chick Fil a work harder then you. Effort = pay not entitlement.
GE is out of touch with the current payscale realities. The upper management, no value added folks, take up the pay while the blue collar folks are under paid. The covid thing proved that management can stay home and production will still happen.
A class A machinist should be getting 30 to 38 an hour. A tool maker should be at 40 to 50. A simple indeed search will show this. HR is in a fog of 1984 as far as pay goes. GE has rebranded itself all right, they have gone from a company that people waited to work for to a company that can't bring in talent.
All the onions under the GE umbrella were neutered in the 80s. The only thing left are a bunch of yes men. Everything lost in the past will never be gained again. This is reality. When people start to think only of themselves in a onion this is what happens. One of the most deadly of the seven sins are upon us now. Greed.
It takes a while to get to $25 an hour is not the pay scale starts around $18 an hour for new hires? It takes a while to get to full rate if I’m right. Target warehouse is paying $28 an Hour 3 12 hour shifts or 4 10 hour shifts. McDonald’s is paying $18 to start these days.
Vote yes for the 1 year contract if you still want to keep your jobs. The company is always in control and never keeps their words. Vote No and big job eliminations.
@1hge+1jr4uxso. Hilarious 😂😂😂
@jsv+1jr4uxso- It will grow and thrive again like back in 1920. I here that a small section of 273 will make generator parts. The other half will make solar panels and tank parts for the military. Unlimited OT and Double time on Sunday to pay for our higher healthcare costs after this next round of layoffs. The company said they are higher if 25 more people. Is that union or management staff? It Was not stated or clarified but I’m pretty sure it was smoke and mirrors for good media.
True, GE will never sell that campus. It is completely contaminated. Like GE Bangor, like GE Hooksett. Doesn't mean people will be employed there.
I hope they close it down and move it to china.
You can come to GE and make $25. What a deal! The Union screwed us the last two contracts and 2023 will make it 3. Solidarity marches do nothing but pump more hot air in to the egos at the Hall. Notice the silence when the question of who’s getting a pension was brought up? When will the alleged leadership acknowledge all is needed is a good faith effort to close the gap? Until then the GE drain will keep sucking us all down!!!
Smile and be happy your not at McDonalds making $21 hour or Walmart making $28 hour in the warehouse.
