Historically after each contract there is a layoff. Just a matter of days before the announcement
Topics regarding layoffs at Textron
Word in the plant is that all of W-7 is going on furlough starting the week of Thanksgiving until January 11th. Maybe a skeleton crew here and there.
Is the strike happening or no
Anyone considering Textron may just lockout strikers?
Has anyone seen the proposal? Word is there is a copy floating around and it doesn't look good but haven't seen it yet.
Word is Textron will use their remaining headcount leftover from the 1,850 as leverage during negotiations. They are about to play very dirty.
W7 is being told that they are going on furlough at the end of the month (September) they asked for volunteers for the longitude.
Stinking Cessna Union Members don't know how to strike. They just buy whatever the company offers. It a good thing us Beech Union Members will stand strong against the company and let Cessna Union Members ride our backs to get a good contract.
I heard about a furlough for the week of Labor Day - September 7-11.
Latest rumor from negotiations is a buy out of pension, not a freeze like old Beech pension. This would only affect longtime textron employees not former Beech employees. Once again we get screwed and they get to keep their old... — read more

Any word of engineering getting layoffs? I don’t want to work Textron anymore and hope to be laid off..
I heard yesterday that the company is talking a second round of cuts coming and now they are talking about going back to lockdown. This is not the direction we need it to go. Hold on tight going to be a bumpy road.
How long till the next round of layoffs for bargaining?
As the company continues to furlough. It burns up your unemployment account (if you take it). So if this goes on for a while and then you get laid off, you may not have many weeks left of unemployment. Watch your nickels and dimes folks. you have... — read more
They started furloughs for next week 7/18-7/25. Week by week basis
I heard that the company was going to offer an early retirement buyout for the shop floor. Does anyone know why that didn’t happen?
I’m told as of 07/15/2020 at 3:30pm, at the Wichita Cessna Service Center 43 were laid-off; 23 Avionics Techs were hit. All were Grade C employees. No Interiors were taken.
1950 was the number given out for I think 3 divisions of Textron. Textron Aviation so far got around 1130. So 820 are for the the rest or Textron Aviation will dip in for some more?
Will their be any lay-off today
People are getting walked out at plant 4 and w7
Delays and slides. Good luck all, this will not end up good.
I keep hearing the same thing from everyone. Tomorrow by lunch time, most of 2nd shift will be gone. If you have 4 years or less you are gone as well. This person also told me they made a bunch of people get recerts and new certs (probably because... — read more
Asked my boss if rumors about bargaining layoffs starting July 14th was true...all he replied was "that's what I hear." So, not sure if he meant yes or no.
Ok, I know this is for discussing layoffs, but what the heck! It rains and we don't have to show our filled out Covid19 form on our cell phones to security, but, if you got out for lunch and it is NOT raining, you have to show your cell phone. That's... — read more
