You can try using a login script:
Add the following:

WMIC product where name="Symantec Endpoint Protection" call uninstall

Have you tried uninstalling the clients from the SEP server?

You can also look at using psexec if the users dont have local admin.

I have come to the conclusion WMIC is worth a try, there is no way to uninstall through the SEP management server and Symantec states they have no uninstall tool to use on a large scale uninstall. Will follow up with the final solution, thank you.

Did you set an uninstall password for SEP, if so then silent uninstall might not be possible - see link

There are also more details to uninstall using the commandline. (loginscript)

There actually was no mass uninstall tool provided by Symantec. We had to manually uninstall and run Clean Wipe on all problem PC's.

I had spent several days on the phone with Symantec with the tech coming to the same conclusion.
