The Schenectady site is a cash draining cancer on the Power Business Unit. The sites manufacturing assets should have been moved out of NY long ago. Ridiculous regional operating expenses, an under skilled and overplayed (militant) union workforce, and a culture of “good enough” technical stagnation has created a frog that will never get its kiss.
I have heard via two personal contacts in executive level HR positions in Boston that moving Schenectady manufacturing operations is the reality. The buisness is just deciding how much to move overseas vs South to non-union friendly states.
It will be a blessing for GE as this productivity loser has been on corporate sponsored life support for to long!
