GE is at it again. The News story is GE Appliance is up for sale again. The article says lighting too.  (Jul 16, 2014 | post #5656)

Found out today that it is really only 3 offers. Turned out that one missed it by 27 days (birthday is Dec 27), and the other has his birthday at the end of January.  (Nov 15, 2013 | post #5587)

When this thread was started it was to share information about what we were hearing about our jobs. Not what it has now turned into, a pissing contest to put each other down. Lets not fall into the companies trap of dividing us up. Our only strength is if we keep together, and spreading truthful information. Remember if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything.  (Oct 15, 2013 | post #5578)

I know what you meant, and no it would be better with no tiers. We do the same work, and we should get the same pay. I can't tell you how many of the 2nd tier people started with the thinking of it is better than nothing, but later resent the fact that they do the same job and get paid less.  (Sep 2, 2013 | post #5537)

So far there has only been one posting of documented facts (newspaper article), but the other comments are not documented. Until you can provide documented facts that say otherwise, I will have to agree with the written article. Yes, I agree those can be swayed by how they are presented, but they are not controlled by emotions. You want to talk facts? Here are some. "GE history in the Valley. North Park Avenue Ohio Lamp Plant: Last local GE factory; formerly employed 1,200 in the 1970s. Now employs 198. Austintown plant: Closed in 2008. Niles Glass plant: Closed in 2008; formerly had 500 workers in the 1970s. Niles Mahoning Glass: Closed in April 2010; formerly had 300 workers. Youngstown Lamp Plant: Previously employed 1,000 workers. Trumbull Lamp Plant: Previously on Warren's west side; employed 400 workers." Source: Tribune Chronicle archives. https://www.tribto day.com/page/conte nt.detail. 6/3/13. This means that in the last 42.5 years (1970 to 2013) the number of employees has dropped OVER 3200 people in your area alone, and only in production. When GE negotiates a supplemental agreement for decision bargaining, GE never agrees to go past the next upcoming contract (as mentioned in the article's 2015 date). I state this as fact based on our decision bargaining. Please show me documented facts showing GE increasing jobs by this amount in the USA. As for teaming up with Clueless. Thank you, he/she does seem to be level headed. You are partly correct. I feel sorry for those losing their jobs. I feel sorry for those that are to retire, but not ready to do so yet. I feel sorry for friendships ending between co-workers over anger about a person doing what is best for themselves. I feel sorry that some individuals have to (or feel) the need to belittle complete strangers because their opinion is different than theirs, or use the incorrect wording. As I told Radmus, insulting and calling names does not give you any creditability. At least Radmus has the courage to sign up as a member of this board, and follow the rules. With this said, unless you are polite (like I am to you) don't bother to reply to my post any longer.  (Jun 5, 2013 | post #5467)

QUOTE who="Radmus "]<quoted text> by your third (now fifth) post you are insulting the person that replies to you does not bode well for your credibility either. [/QUOTE] At least it was spelt right  (Jun 4, 2013 | post #5465)

Like I said. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and to their vote. Either way I am sorry for those that are effected by this. I know how hard it can be, for both sides of the coin.  (Jun 4, 2013 | post #5463)

Clueless is right, and like it or not, that is the way it is. We are all just numbers to GE, and if they could pay us less, GE would. Also the fact that you start your very first post bashing others (you are entitled to your opinion), and by your third post you are insulting the person that replies to you does not bode well for your credibility either. Say what you want to me, I am not debating how you post, but just trying to give you some understanding from my years of experience (yes, I guess I am old).  (Jun 3, 2013 | post #5458)
