Topics regarding layoffs at TransCanada Corp.
How many got laid off 3/36?
Paperwork and forms for everything ,terrible construction management bunch of rookies ,it’s by the book unless your a buddy good money for 27 years not worth it find something better if your smart
I don’t know which was a dumber decision, the new garbage Laptops/tablets they bought or spending millions to develop 1TC. The people in charge of both of these decisions should be fired in my view.
I didn’t get laid off, but I’m under so much pressure now that I’m going to have to quit my job. It's certainly never been this bad before. Is it just their tactic to get rid of more people without giving layoffs, I’m not sure, but that’s how it... — read more

Is it just me or did I remember seeing a post that had a lot of threads about Jason Kennedy and the Alberta government? Was the post removed? Ahhhh free speech as long as it’s not offensive. Got to love it.
Buckle up, it’s about to get real.
The reality is that there are people who currently work here, do not have the required skill (s). The “It’s not what you know it’s who you know” process is affecting the overall performance of the company. HR hiring processes are very poor. Hiring... — read more
I've heard scuttle of some layoffs in a few business units but nothing to the mass layoffs that these threads speak of. No movement of office closures. Some talk of keeping FT headcount down, re-orgs forcing those remaining to wear more hats, and... — read more
I’m worried about the upcoming reorgs as I’m pretty certain majority of us are. Sadly, I have a feeling many are not going to be ready for it. To make it worse, I have a nauseating pit in my stomach because I know the wait is going to be painful. I... — read more
Offices in Calgary Houston and WV now closed til Jan 11.
I am hearing US and Tech centre to start Nov 30 and happen over 2 weeks depending on department
Get ready for some "re-organization" aka layoffs announced today at the town hall. Already confirmed, the only people left standing will be the "preservation team" aka friends of management.
Anyone thinks TC can be cruel enough as to continue this 'realignment' into the holiday season? From what I've heard, what's going on right now is just the start. Who knows how long they'll drag it out. I really hope they have it all done before... — read more
A realignment announcement this afternoon, changes already being made. Cancellation of meetings already happening. It’s interesting to see it unfold, it’s part of the process, they just need to tell individuals rather than prolonging it. — read more
Attended a meeting with executive management. The list of names is being conducted by HR. In the next 3 to 4 weeks, the purge will begin and completed by December.
Right as he announced his retirement, the ELT goes back on his word for no personnel cuts in 2020, in the midst of a pandemic. Breaking this promise will tarnish the company’s image for years to come. The pseudo pay-cuts from taking away days off are... — read more
One of the best companies and the managers that I have worked for (after working in major oil sands companies and international engineering companies). I belong to a minority group and up until that day, I have never faced any adversities in Canada. ... — read more
I heard the layoffs are not all related to Keystone XL and may be company wide. Might be a large reorganization. There is a reason they asked everyone to start working from the office in September. HR can't deliver the paperwork when your let go of... — read more
Email sent out today to Canada Gas.
I work at TC and every time I see people that join TC I wonder: how that happens.... with those skills they are bringing on board.... or correct me to say: with no required skills. If HR reads this blog, please pay attention that bringing someone... — read more
We won’t see many jobs declared redundant in 200/2021. The Canadian government is expected to invest substantially into the energy sector in Alberta. As everyone knows Alberta is the engine that drives Canada. A strong Alberta leads to a strong... — read more
with new pipeline approval issues and still uncertainty of upcoming elections.... I see some folks are no longer with us. Are we putting some hiring freeze on contractors?
If anyone has had success in negotiating a larger package, please provide your recommendations!
Sad ...but true...you cannot get a job unless you know "someone" ...and if you do, they ask you to "modify" the CV to match the job description...so you get the job... That is how we ended up hiring people with a background in health, others with a... — read more
Most of the recent individual layoffs target minorities, immigrants, and people who have no political affiliations called "networking".
talking about the technical side, it is really messy, kickout the qulifued "can do" people, and now looks no people really know what is the work they are doing, but only talking around. mess around with limited of knowledge.
It's all about...
While working with problems going on in another station, a station alert came up in another area and it is said I acknowledged it but didn't react until 4 hours later. This happened on a Sunday afternoon and I was asked to come up on Tuesday, my... — read more
Nothing in the news
Do you think that they will go after Columbia staff? In the next round of layoffs? Anyone?
Post updates here - I know that there are many rumors flying around but let's see what we can consolidate here in terms of things that TC folks know
More changes still coming
What is a typical severance package at Transcanada? Do packages vary much from person to person? How about someone that has their retirement numbers?
Announced today. Execs, then managers then regular employees. Employee cuts are in September
