MORE than 100 Aberdeen employees of US group General Electric claim they are being kept in the dark about plans for their operation.
Oilfield technology manufacturer Sondex – whose subsidiaries included Aberdeen-based Geolink – was acquired by GE for more than £260million at the end of 2007.
The former Sondex workers, who are based at Dyce and also in Hampshire, have now been told that 39 jobs are to go.
One Aberdeen employee said yesterday: “There are 102 of us at Dyce and another 40 or so in Hampshire.
“GE has been saying very little to us about what its plans are. We fear that Aberdeen will bear the brunt of this cost-cutting move. There is also talk in the workplace that the Aberdeen office will be closed completely.”
GE Oil and Gas has declined to comment.
