Yup, it’s starting. Several folks in my unit let go this week also. Still tallying which of them had a “minus” and which did not, but it’s been very upsetting for many.😥🫂

Yep. This person is right. Anyone who has survived will just be filing in line for the next quarterly performance review. GM will continue to sc--w their employees over until they decide to outsource and, of course, start forming joint ventures with the Chinese EV companies who they have no chance of competing against.

It’s a terrible thing to say, but, the writing is on the wall. GM will just cycle through their valuable experienced employees as bad as the Russian army in Ukraine. Same result scenario with incompetent commanders wasting experienced people.

Gm trying the sc--w over its employees? They would never do such a thing haha.

Wouldn’t put it past them though - heard they are looking to do even more frequent performance evaluations this year. I.e. “we’re going to take every chance we can to come up with an excuse to terminate you without paying severance”. Getting similar cr-p even though I’ve been there about 10 years and always had a great review.

I'd like to see a graph of the ages.

While I do see younger people, it feels like it's weighted to 40 and above.

If they're doing mass layoffs by performance review, they're trying to sc--w the employees out of Unemployment by saying they were fired for cause.

"It's not me, it's you."

I'm guessing INF is infotainment?

But I don't know.

Usually, the company only has to disclose that information as part of the Older Workers Benefit Protection Act during a mass layoff. They are doing mass layoff via performance firings. This is interesting. I wonder what time frame this particular disclosure is for? That day only? Or over months?
I just counted - that was 163 names.
Thank you for posting this and I'm sorry you were let go. I hope things work out for you!

Most likely, IT.

From what I hear in HR, more reductions will be coming, across all orgs. GM is going to try to reduce headcount in other ways, but in order to save the 1.5 billion in reduced salaried costs, it sounds like they will start cutting salaries by 25-30 %. As to how that will transpire, it seems to be still under discussion.

What is the "INF function"?
I didn't see anything anywhere about this.
Can anyone confirm?

PS To the OP, most people are not on discord, and if they are, there's no way to see the information. "NO TEXT CHANNELS".
