    Default Suncor announce laid off of 1000 in 2015

    http://www.suncor.com/en/newsroom/5441.aspx?id=1911200

    Suncor has also implemented a series of workforce initiatives that will reduce total workforce numbers in 2015 by approximately 1000 people, primarily through its contract workforce, in addition to reducing employee positions. There will also be an overall hiring freeze for roles that are not critical to operations and safety.

    Not good...

    We thought the job markets were bad after talisman, pennwest, devon layoffs etc.

    Good time to keep your head down and mouth shut at work i think...

    Lots of the larger jobs we were counting on coming out this year look like they will be pushed back a few ways.

    Cancer center, composting facility, etc.. I thought the purpose of P3 was so that the government could fund projects in times of economic downturn?

    Yup

    Someone could make a killing right now going around figuring out what other skills O&G people have for backup jobs

    Suncor has something like 14,000 employees, plus thousands of contractors. Cutting a thousand of them may seem like a lot, but that's spread over their field and office locations.
    My guess, maybe half that number are based in Calgary.

    And so it begins.....????

    Talked to a realtor today and he's quite pessimistic for 2015. He's one of the higher ranked ones in the City too. This will be interesting!

    The other layoffs were not due to oil prices. This is the start.

    You apparently need a chemical engineering degree to be a brewmaster. I suspect there will be plenty available shortly.

    Any smart O&G worker would be putting money away for when this happens. Not like these downturns are a huge shock.

    Interesting, I didn't know that.

    My university ended up offering a full degree for brewing, I imagine that would be an equal substitute. I feel like I went to school for the wrong thing. lol. Ever since we got the farm I've been wanting to grow barley and start a brewery.

    I wonder if $1m would be enough capital to get things going..

    I thought a Mayor would pull way less. If these are real numbers:
