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

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)

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