Inadvertent email welcomes GE employees to Electrolux

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - Employees at General Electric got a scare this morning, when a letter inadvertently went out welcoming them to Electrolux.

The letter, addressed "Dear New Colleague," welcomes  GE employees to Electrolux and offers information about how to sign up with Human Relations and other initial steps.

GE quickly responded to the email, saying they were looking into what caused the mistake.

"This morning you may have received a welcome email allegedly from Electrolux. We are aware of this and are working to determine what happened.

Rest assured that there has been no change in our integration status and this is not an official notification or notice of a pending change."

A second email was then sent by GE to its employees, saying the letter was sent out inadvertently.

"We have confirmed with Electrolux that the “Welcome to Electrolux” email you may have received was issued inadvertently. There has been no change in our integration status and this is not an official notification or notice of a pending change. Upon successful completion of the regulatory approval process and closing, this is the type of email employees would receive to guide them through the onboarding process. Please discard it."

The purchase of GE by Electrolux is not final and is under review by the United States Department of Justice. They are scheduled to go to trial on Nov. 9 in Federal Court.
