If you recall, we had work up the yin/yang. Then it got so bad the company asked us not to take our raise. Then shortly after, they rehired a ton of people.

I don't think Texas is a factor yet. Hang in there baby ;)

BTW hopefully lots of old guys will take the temporary layoffs first. Then when they're almost out of cash, they'll come back to let the low guys go out fresh.

I'm up for a vacation courtesey of Uncle PA and IEA ;)

So, E-board meeting today and an announcement to follow Monday. Guess we know what that means. Hang onto your hat folks. At least this will come out before the election and people will see that Obama doesn't bring the hope and change he was promising 4 years ago.

rumors rumors what a joke. If you plan on Texas one thing to remember you will have to quit ge and get hired as a new employee until you have been laid off for a year or more. You will lose all your senority, keep contunity of service if you have more then a year and will have no recall to erie. Good Luck been there already.
