It's never a good thing when your employer has a mandatory
meeting..... and HR is there. Shocked

It happened at my previous job & they shut it down.

Well, after 13+ years it just happened again. Mad

The company I work for entered a tolling agreement with
another company and BAM! doors are closing at the end of
the year.

At least they are giving us a decent severance & notice.

Trying to convince myself that everything happens for a reason.

I just may be in the same boat, last quarterly meeting the president of our company announced a major loss that were more his fault than the economy so we've been integrated into another group made up of 3 or 4 other companies so now we're learning that what we do at our facility maybe moving to Georgia, know more in a couple of weeks they keep telling us,

Sorry to hear this. Best of luck to you.

I got the hey stick around a couple of minutes I need to talk to you about something 7 years ago. Then the plant manager, HR manager, and my manager all appeared. Been there and done that. Then 1-1/2 years later they shut down 3 plants.

Best of luck Beertooth - I know this sucks but hopefully you'll find an equal or better opportunity.

Been there as well.. They say when one door closes a better one opens. I hope that's true in your case.

Well, yep, the company is relocating to Augusta next year, they figure my department should be good here until the 3rd quarter of next year but I have a feeling it's going to be sooner, if we're lucky enough to be here until the actual close next year I just might be lucky enough to slide into full retirement if not then I'll just take early retirement everything depends on severance pay and a few months unemployment as to whether it'll be full or early. I'm only 1 of about 15 out of 300 that is in this scenario of not having to look for work.
