So, Nostradumbass, enlighten us to what company makes all the products that Eriez does, sells to all the industries that Eriez does, has the same engineering prowess and PhD's, has the same monstrous sales representative force and has offices all over the world that's going to drive Eriez out of business in 5 years?

It has been my experience that the vast majority of people that work in factories, which I do, have given up. The old saw of ' if you don't like it quit" is a joke. The people who say this have no pride left and are willing to be treated like garbage. They have been beaten down to the point of rolling over. Anyone who has common sense an a bit of pride left are "bitching." lol. I work circles around my co-workers on a regular basis but they think they are better employees than me because they suck up to bosses. Yes, I have a dead-end job at the moment but I still retain enough common sense to realize it and seek another position elsewhere. These factory rats walk around like zombies.

OK so everyone thinks the GE union is being greedy and the union workers are lazy and that's why GE wants to leave Erie. But the real reason is Greed. I work at Eriez Magnetics and if you want to talk about Greed they are the kings of greed. Here is once a Great Erie company that cared about their workers. When Bob and his wife died they left the company to a snot nosed spoiled kid who gives 2 shits about the workers. With the cost of living going through the roof this company that has been posting record profits for the last 10 years and has given their employees nothing! No cost of living adjustments in the last 5 years. Eriez has been on a pay freeze for the last 2 years so new people can't reach the top of their pay scale. People are promoted on the buddy system regardless of skill or seniority. And if you are a minority you should just be happy they allowed you too step foot in their building. Talk about good old boy mentality. Half the work that was done here in Erie 10 years ago is now done in China and no one is screaming bring those jobs back! Guys at Eriez want a union bad but if you're caught talking about a union Eriez Magnetics will fire you and theres snakes in the grass. Guys at eriez make on the avg, half of what GE workers make and the work they do is seriously dangerous. Its all coming down to corporate greed and these 4-5 fat cats at the top need all the money to insure their Great Great Great Great grandchildren never have to make ends meet while the guys making them that money struggle to make ends meet. Im praying for the guys of GE's union wish we could stand out front with you but being an employee of Eriez Magnetics it would get us fired!
walk out..show them they cant function without you. You must be fed up with supporting their lavish lifestyle with the sweat of your brow and the muscle in your back.

Eriez is set to lay off 50 people and possibly go to 30 hours.

Eriez is circling the drain. The president can't even be bothered to be in the office more than 2 days a month and no one knows where he is or what hes doing. Used to be a great place to work.

They haven't had a layoff in 70+ years. Seems unlikely that they'd change now.

You are absolutely correct. This is exactly how Eriez is. They threatens their employees with being fired, make them go 8-9-10 years with no raises. They are racist and allowed to break laws and abuse their employees. They are not what they once were thanks to the president, vp's and mainly engineering managers who have been caught numerous times being threatening and racist and lying on reviews and still nothing done. Yes they do call the cops on GE employees trying to give out union flyers. Saw the VP Mike Mankosa call them and get the employees to watch. He was so proud of himself.

Actually it is all true and proven. Several employees are willing to attest to all of it because they are sick of it. Sounds like you may be one of those managers reaping the benefits of the hard working men and women there while denying them what they deserve. Way to hide behind a post. Haha. tool. Sad but true. Anyone who says otherwise and claims to work their is one of the few suckling on the tit and kissing ass while watching others get the shaft. Some of us though can admit the truth.

Yeah you must be one of the soulless ones that treat the employees like crap, or are an employee that kisses ass hoping they will throw you a bone! They don't give out raises, they are racist, and they do treat employees like crap and threaten them. Top executives even threaten the managers. Sick.

The president could care less about the employees. The owner too. They are nothing like Orange and Chet. They actually had half a brain to realize the employees drive the company.

I was fired this past week because my boss wanted to take credit for my work and i wouldn't let him. They screwed me right before I was fully vested in 401k too. Not so much dogpoop but rather more true.

<quoted text>The union workers at GE set a profit record last year and continued that by breaking the record for profit in the first quarter of this year. The CEO got a 80% raise in pay, so how lazy are the workers??? You're an idiot and a greedy one at that.
It wasn't the union workers who set a profit record last year! Workers are payed a certain amount to do a certain job. They have nothing to do with sales, managing and running departments. Are you trying to tell me a welder who welds is part of the reason for record profits?

Hahaha please tell me your not that stupid! Please tell me your just joking with us. Haha.
Employees absolutely contribute to profits you moron! How fast they work, how efficiently they work, the quality of their work. All of that reflects rejects and rework and more money having to be spent then what was budgeted. If the "welder" sucked at his job and cost them money every day you better believe there would be no record profits. You can budget and sell all you want but if you can't get the product out the door with quality work in a timely manner your going to lose those profits. You may now remove your head from your arse. I pray no moron has given you any kind of responsibilities in this company.
