Banghead AV Temecula Layoffs

Heard from different sources that the next layoffs concerning Abbott Vascular Temecula will be on or around January 23, 2013 of approximatly 400-500 people.

Can someone confirm or provide information of what they know?

In recent past, layoffs occured after quarterly earnings and this would be about the time 4th quarter earnings would be revealed.

Angry Temecula layoffs soon

I have heard from a high-level supervisor in Temecula that he expects the 500ish layoff in Temecula today or soon. Something about 2nd shift for production of the stents being eliminated. Some people may be moved to morning shift if you're valued there like he is.
Don't know any other details as I don't work there.

just got word that layoffs are Feb. 6, 2013. heard from multiple reliable sources. They said if you have 4 or more incidents you are on the choping block and the rest will be performance based. Some people have already been "semi" notified" to soften the blow come wed. Yes heard the same as posts above, mainly second shift and restructuring and around 500 people in the temecula/murrieta locations.

Personally I am sick of directors and higher ups saying layoff's are not performance based but "business needs" when it's a flat out lie.

Thumbs down Re: AV Temecula Layoffs

Amazing how they get around the WARN (EDD Layoff notices) by not laying off more than 500 and since 50 to 499 people is not 33% of its workforce, they do not have to notify EDD ahead of time like everyone else.
I tried looking to see if EDD had a notice of the rumored upcoming layoffs but there is nothing there.

Not true. The layoff doesn't officially occur until 60 days after the employee is notified. The employee is still on the payroll during that time, just doesn't have to come to work.

Crying Re: AV Temecula Layoffs

You guys are all dumb a$ses.... If you haven't been tapped on the shoulder by upper management, you are now expendable. If you fit this scenario, accept it and start look for a job so you when that time comes you are closer or possibly have a job lined up. Now if MotherAbbott has the layoffs on Wednesday, you are F@ck'd or are you one of the lucky ones.

The writing is clearly on the walls that the plan is to close the Temecula facility, they just don't want all of the drones abandoning ship until they have everything transferred to Puerto Rico, Clonmel, and Costa Rica...I just don't want to be one of the last when they say "bye-bye, and by the way there's no package left."

The last post is sad but most likely true. They are moving the jobs overseas but of course the company would never say it publicly. They give some other half-true excuse about business when really they should just say they're trying to reduce labor costs. I know a supervisor there who was offered a chance to go train his replacements in Costa Rica about a year ago and he told them no.

Your Super was an idiot. Ex-US experience on any resume, not just an internal one at ABT, is a huge Gold Star across the top, no matter what the position is.... it can always be polished on a resume. A night shift janitor in Costa Rica that sweeps floors can be a lead mentoring position for manufacturing engineers. It could double their salary when they return to US position, if they even want to come back

I haven't heard of any Temecula layoffs from my source yet. Based on what he told me it will be in Feb. though. Mostly the production line for the heart stents as I've said before. No idea on others impacted.

Still expecting the whole 2nd production line to go bye bye soon and some of those people will be moved to 1st shift. Not sure when.

15-20% across most departments. Obviously production will take the beating with 2nd shift being axed

Ultimately, they are trying to get TEM down to around 1500 employees.

leads were already asked to step down to an operator (keeping same pay) role to have emore flexability of movement.

The writing on the wall is either this week or the following. God help all those that will be affected and curse those making the decision.

I hear 2/20 is doomsday.

Really peope! Get a grip! You have no contrd ol over these decisions, sitrd for a back relax, and dont work so hard for a soulless corporration that only cares about its top 10%. I say organize a show of force. work slow, screw production slowly.

Not happening', doesnt make sense to shut down 2nd shift...need that shift to ensure production can meet customer needs. However, with performance appraisals completed if u have a bad appraisal, you have a great chance of getting hit the next round of layoffs...it seems like every Wednesday is the day! Check the history and use that as your guide instead of going crazy every Wednesday....good luck

Angry Re: AV Temecula Layoffs

Last poster you are incorrect. 2nd shift is being cut and some people moved to 1st shift. I imagine they'll keep the best in both shifts and merge them into the 1st shift. A high level supervisor there told me this. He is from 2nd shift and has been told he's moving to 1st shift when the layoffs happen. Costa Rica is slowly ramping up and 2nd shift in Temecula is no longer needed. Outsourcing at its finest. Save probably millions of $ per year moving manf. out of the US. It was just a matter of time and I'm surprised it took this long. I don't know if it's happening today but I heard late Feb. Doubt it will be the last round either unless it's more than 500 people.

Who cares if there is a layoff, Abbott under pays amost all of us low end workers, making millions for miles, yet our year end bonuses go unannounced. Most who are layed off and are ready to commute a little farther see pay increase by 30-60%
