    I’ve been in 2 different unions; one for 7 years, one for 3. They’re currently in contract negotiations since we’ve been without one since July 1. Regular raises are nice and when shit hits the fan, representation is key. I’ve never been jammed up so I can’t say if their lawyers are worth a damn...

    Bleh. Between waking up too early today, the cold, the rain, and general B.S., this was by far the shittiest Monday I've had in quite a while

    Our contract also ran out in July. Company wanted us to sign for the second time a 1 year extension of previous contract with no change. Employees voted no. So company retaliated with 18 layoffs. We’ll see what happens next.

    We got hit hard yesterday at the all employee meeting.
    30% of all salaried employees got the chopping block. The remaining 70% have to reapply for the same job they already have.
    Temps are gone, shutting down 3rd shift.
    Hourly seems safe as of now for atleast 6 months.

    Carry on.

    Damn man, that’s tough. What’s your industry? Things have been extremely slow in the northeast. I know the stocks looks great but it really feels like things are not going very good right now. Maybe things are just artificially inflated right now.

    G.E. Power.
    Schenectady took a huge hit as well.
    My shift coordinator (friend) with 21 yrs is getting bumped to 2nd shift. The 2nd shift shift coordinator with only 3 yrs.....gets to keep his job because they are eliminating most all of 3rd shift and 1st and 2nd are not affected.

    ouch, that really blows. Im concerned for the future of the airline industry, the market is just so oversaturated, and nobody has made any major improvements in any areas that matter. its only a matter of time before we start seeing airlines close their doors again. Plus, the pilot shortage issue is going to become a problem at some point, and either the FAA is going to have to do something to make it easier to get commercially certified pilots, or theres going to be a massive reduction in air travel and air cargo capacity.

    Years ago GE had a big plant in Utica NY where I grew up and I remember that parking lot full three shifts a day and then just two shifts a day then no shifts a day. Sad.

    GE has been having a tough few months it seems. Stock is taking a dive. One report I saw said they might have to do away with dividends to pay debt.

    We just bought 6 GE engines here at work 2500hp & 3650hp hopefully that helps the cause.
