My bad.. miss read thought it said at lunch break.. If drinking on clock instead of working then yes they should be fired


so drinking on your lunch break (on company property) and then heading back inside to build family sedans is ok?

They were on break but I don't know of one job that allows you to drink on your lunch break, especially if you're dealing with machinery


there is 0 tolerance policies for all non union companies for this type of shenanigans. if there is an accident and you test positive for pot or fail a breath test, you are fired, period.

To be fair to Chrysler, they were fired. UAW just won the arbitration hearing so now they can return. I'm sure there must be more to this, but I'm having real trouble figuring out how intoxication isn't a fire able offense.

re: UAW: you can't fire workers drinking on the job.


So we should start having breathalyzers and piss tests as we all come back from break..

This is not the standard policy for jobs that involve heavy machinery..

Did they make a mistake? get hurt? No, well who the frick cares what they do on their lunch break.

This is standard policy.. If you get hurt on a construction, they drug test you. Get hurt driving 18 wheeler, drug test. Get hurt in a factory job, drug test.

I don't understand why you think the entire industry standard is retarded?

Just saying Chrysler did not follow standard policy and UAW called them out on it.

What in fricks sake are you talking about? There is video of them drinking and abusing drugs on company property. That's grounds for termination at any company in the USA

For what?

And what do you want the plant to do? breathalyze every individual who walks into work at all times? Drug test randomly every two weeks.

Its industry standard across the board. auto workers or not; union workers or not

What the hell are you talking about?

The incident involved the company getting a tip that they were drinking at a park. Then apparently someone filmed them doing it.

nothing about company property..

I'm thinking any company that operates machinery has a zero tolerance policy for employees who use that machinery. At least that is my experience in the past couple of decades.

where ive worked in similar scenarios, it took an incident to start an investigation into such activities then a zero policy approach.

But could be a little outdated

Nope

Maybe that's bc I'm responsible and actually care about keeping my job..... Or the fact that I'm not in bed with a shitty organization that will get me off for being a slimy piece of shite

Are you fricking serious! These two fricking idiots are building cars that carry families you fricking moron. You and jackasses like you are what's wrong with this country. There was a time and a place for unions; companies are held accountable now more than ever by labor laws. No need for unions; so frick off!
