Donnelleys has been restructuing it's workforce again. Heard today that they have been offering some long time employees the option of demotion or "the door". Doesn't sound good for the future.

More today and tonight. I was one of them. Offered demotion or severance package. All those "chosen" today and tonight were given the rest of their Thur. shift and all of Friday shift off with pay to think about it. Bad times are coming. This is just the start.

All those who are getting the "demotion" are not getting a pay cut, they will be paid the same to do the job they orginally came from.

Atleast the workers are given a choice, instead of the company decided to just drop them all together.

I can't speak for the others but if I choose the demotion, there is a small cut in pay involved.

Thats not what some of the guys that did get the demotion said, but then again it could all be decided on exactly what the job is. The 2 are trimmer operators that we know that have personally got the choice to either demote or leave.

I could be wrong though, there may indeed be a small pay cut...knowing donnelleys and all.

Like I said.. maybe they didn't. I haven't spoken to anyone else yet. I just know in my case it basically amounts to them taking back the 2.5% that they were giving everyone.

That's my understanding and what management told me. But we all know how that goes. Management will shake your hand with their right hand while their left hand is reaching for a knife to stab you in the back.
