It seems the rumor mill is up and running. Talks of seros, layoffs and future Texas production. The word is the company has said there's 1200 to many people and maybe talking seros again to limit impact of any future layoff. Also the Texas plant is intended for full production, not overflow asany were lead to believe.

The best part of the GE rumor mill is its usually the complete opposite of fact; maybe that means there's really a large order looming in near future......

The rumor mill has been idle for quite some time, I was afraid that it might not start up so easily after being out of service for so long. I ran into a couple of union guys during shut down and they asked me about the rumor then and how they heard there are no new orders, work was slow, etc. I told them not to believe everything you hear. A few days later, GE reports great second quarter earnings and oodles of orders in that time.
Look, I believe Fort Worth will have some impact here. How much remains to be seen. The capacity of that plant as stated is alot less than what we can put out here. In my opinion, should GE decide to build another plant in the US, that is when you should be worried. Until then, all we have to do is keep building great product

FYI current orders for 2013 are 299 confirmed.. GE is hoping for 600 total. Not oodles of orders! Off highway is starting production in ft worth. Loco manufacturing is a few months behind, due to the construction of the heavy lift crane bay and production line. All aspect of producing locomotives will be done in texas , except the same outsource parts that we get in Erie. No schedule has been released for Texas production. But if you just figuire 1 a week for 2013, that's 50.. If GE gets all 600 they hope for, that's 550 for Erie. That's less than 12 a week! The plant is staffed for 18+ week. Just do the math..!

I heard two tier by summer this yr, heard noone was coming back after big layoffs, strikes, etc-heard countless rumors in 7years
I tend to believe opposite of rumor mill anymore....
And yes, if new battery plant n engine plants were being built down in Texas, I'd be lot more concerned

Mike, they have never confirmed any official number for the following year at this time of the year. Time will tell as I have not heard anything to confirm the latest gossip but if I had a dollar for every employee that was ever rumored to be getting laid off I would be a rich man. I will say this, if people were truly concerned, then I suggest that they look for a new job and quit now before 1199 other people are competing for that job

I'd say its safe to say Clint is non union, either salary or management, admitting further than that would be bad on his part, as upper management around plant reads these post as often as anyone else.....but he always seems to make valid well versed points

I heard that Lorenzo may be shown the door very shortly.
If the Erie plant does close that is what you get for electing Cadillac Mike Kelley as your congressman, where has he been for the union and management? AWOL! Where is al the Federal help he promised when he was out at the gates two years ago? I'm in Bldg. 6 and I remember him coming in and promising to help us out, boy what a song and dance he sold us, I knew we should have stuck with Kathy D., at least she didn't feed us a line.

Sam, that would be because a) low service people buy into the rumors n foresee sky falling, b) management generally use job as stepping stone for other companies, c) high service own their own home.....
Don't read into this more than what it is, a rumor :)

What a joke. You are an absolute moron. Stick with Dahlcrapper?? Don't forget your GE CEO is butt buddies with Obumbo. You lay with the pigs and you will pay the price.
