The lights are out at the Ravenna Lamp Plant that used to make light bulbs, and the traffic light in front of the plant is next to go. General Electric Co. closed its plant at on North Chestnut Street at S.R. 14 in Ravenna. The plant employed 164 people. Work finished up in december 2013.

Good luck to all my Ravenna Lamp Friends and Fellow Retirees!!!

Ok. I was just wondering. Some of the people at CLP is wanting a union now. I thought maybe they could send some of their union people our way. CLP management still has their rubber rule book here. Just change rules and do what they want.

Shit flows downhill, Batesville closing in a year(announced today)! Thanx Greg Brumbaugh and Tammy(HR). If you see those people at your facility give it 3 to 4 years! Food for thought. Bean counters can suck on my balls!

Hello fellow GE plant closing former employees and retirees.
Found out this week on the BENEFITS.GE.COM web site that as the above we can no longer access OUR payroll information. So if you elected to have the paperless option while you were employed you now have no way to look up your former pay stubs if need be.
Just thought I would put the information out there.

Some people from Ravenna have called the Webmaster, and they said the site may be in Limbo for us because of the plant closing. They sounded like it would be up and running soon...I Hope because we check on our IEA payments also and cannot access anything but or Savings and our benefits.

WOW... when are you going to get over it ? YOU got fired for harassment, or was it sabotage? Either way it was your fault and no one normal would worry about it. who's dumb enough to do what YOU did. really? what were you thinking ? please just move on to a new topic instead of making this your own personnel sounding board.
