So now FedEx is all over the news talking about downsizing and recession...and we are supposed to believe they are going to buy more of our aircraft. Lots of investment money we are about to lose.
As much as people are complaining about all the new workers not knowing what they are doing no one is saying or doing anything about these new vsl's and all the cr-p they are doing. It is just as obvious they have no clue either.
Story here at the East Campus is that the PC&L department is going to be outsourced to Express by July 2023. Anyone on the West Campus hearing such stories?
Layoffs supposed to happen after Midterm Elections and Thanksgiving.
I have no doubts anymore about leaving here.
Heard they are just gonna up OT and then when we run out of parts send us on furlough. What you been hearing?
There is more and more talk about a significant decline in economic activity. I am a bit worried about how the recession will have an impact on the company? What are your thoughts on this?
I'm not at all proud of the fact that I'm still here. I have spoken to some young people for whom this is the last option they consider when looking for a job. I wonder what the leadership can do to make the company more attractive for new hires?... — read more
I don’t think I’ll stay here much longer if I continue to have to do work for two people, just because leadership doesn’t know how to plan well. How many employees do you think this company lacks in order to function optimally?
Here comes the fun! Hope y’all can live off of 40/hrs a week.
July and August will have rolling furlough...and the new language in contract will only affect departments not company wide based on job classification. Get ready cause it's about to get fun. Is there anybody who can confirm if this is true? I'm... — read more
What's the word on July Shutdown?
Get prepared. Parts and supply chain can’t keep up with rates, and engineering overspent. The cost savings exercises are going on now to cut $30M from the business this year. The VP of Sales and his $100k+ golfing trips with his buddies can... — read more
I am hearing lots of different stories concerning furloughs for Textron Aviation. What have you been hearing?
It's great that someone mentioned part shortage as an issue here. Do you think Textron is coping well with this issue or could it be better?
Express has taken over the Plant 1 GR Area and the Identification Area in Paint at Plant 1.
So the latest rumor is independence is no longer going to b making acft. They will make parts only. All acft currently made there will b moved to east campus over the next 2 to 3 years. This doesn't make sense since they r paid way less but... — read more
And I definitely am. Too many days I feel like I'm ba----g my head against a wall while I try to achieve even the simplest thing at work and I don't want to feel like that anymore. If they offered voluntary separations with a decent severance... — read more
So with the deadline set for the move is this going to cause furlough in July?
So what is the price of oil going to do to sales? How long before we see layoffs again like 2008?
I am hearing rumors of furloughs due to parts shortages. Anyone hear this?
So...they r 3D printing parts so they can put stuff together...but all is good right....who r they kidding.
If I leave before TSP Plus and performance bonuses are paid will I still receive either of them?
I've been here a long time and that's why it's so hard for me to leave. However, I am now seriously considering leaving next year because I am no longer satisfied with the atmosphere in this company. I was even thinking of accepting a lower paid... — read more
The January 4th Vaccine Requirement for Textron has been postponed.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone, now get back to work.
14 percent of textron east and west campus are not vaccinated....you are going to need to hire more than 900 people.
Our manager expects others to read his mind. This is a place that could never, or at least as long as I have worked here, be praised for good communication, however, the situations that we have now due to poor (or no) communication are awful... — read more
This thread is for info about potential Textron layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
I'm trying to find a few reasons why I would stay here, but it's difficult. I may be exaggerating, but from my perspective there is no longer any reason why anyone would want to be here if they had any other opportunity. Maybe there's a reason I... — read more
I guess the business groups got through to the White House and got them to move the federal contractor mandate to January 4th so that 4th quarter earnings aren’t impacted by mass layoffs. Question is, will the company actually move their date? — read more
None of this matters cause the company is handing out exemptions like candy.... Why don’t I have this impression that the company is handing out exemptions like candy? I know a man who has a very serious medical problem and I absolutely... — read more
So the WH now says no one should be terminated due to mandate and that it was never their intent for companies to fire people for not getting vaccine. Funny how all new contracts have been sent to companies stating if all employees are not vaccinated... — read more
It may be an individual case, but a colleague who left almost three months ago has still not been replaced. Perhaps Textron is in no hurry to make a replacement, or perhaps there are problems with hiring? I don't know... I wonder what you think, is... — read more
Are they waiting for the whole mandate thing to play out before doing anything?
It is amazing to me when some say that almost half of the employees will leave the company because of the vaccine. What kind of estimates are those? Terrible. I don't believe at all that many people will leave this place because of the vaccine... — read more
I wonder if they will stop everyone at the entrance doors throughout Textron and will terminate them without a vaccination record on the spot or I wonder if they’ll do something similar to a layoff? Any word
