Carpenter, Goose Bay, NL - February 25, 2015
Not sure what was happening with this company at the time of my lay-off, but they really f***ed up. Letting me to believe that i was coming back to work by flying me back to Labrador on their muskrat falls project, transporting me by bus from town towards camp, only to find out at the security gate that i was laid off that day, and then spending two unpaid days in camp and then flown back to Nova Scotia. And I was only one of many that happened to. The whole job consisted of people who didn't know what was going on more than half the time and seemed to not care cause they were getting paid anyway. The formwork system was new to most (DOKA) but treated like it was rocket science by most, which was also disheartening because it was simple and could've been even more simple if middle management ie: supers, gf's foreman had told the higher supervision to actually prepare enough material ahead of time, ex: form panels, material, tools etc. before hiring 200 plus carpenters whom were laid off because productivity output didn't match financial input. The saddest part about it was that I would go back there in a heartbeat cause the money was good.
