Fred1369 is reading this now saying WTF is this?
Chrysler auto workers

just saw on the news that a bunch of auto workers that Chrysler fired about 2 years ago for drinking and "smoking" on their breaks, filmed of course, were rehired due to union pressure. On the tape they were holding and smoking in a non-usual manner and the brown bags were covering quart bottles, not the standard beer bottle. Apparently the union considers there is no such thing as a fireable offense. Who wants to buy a Chrysler?

Unions are a joke. They protect the corrupt and incompetent and stifle individual initiative.

Smoking in a non-usual manner? Drinking from bags covering quart bottles, not the standard beer bottle? What does this mean? Were these employees sent to the clinic to be tested for drugs or alcohol? I know my employer has the right to do that for reasonable suspicion. My employer has the right to test us randomly with no probable cause because it is an agreement I signed on to when I was hired.

In this case Fred I'd say they probably were partying...but a employer should have proof before they make an assumption that cost an employee their job. If they don't need any proof then that alone is proof of why a Union is a good thing for an employee.

spdrcr137 wants to know Dino or Syn?
James im throwing the BULL flag. The union protected them as usual.

While the company does not agree with the ultimate decision of the arbitrator, we respect the grievance procedure process as outlined in the collective bargaining agreement and our relationship with the UAW. Unfortunately, the company was put in a very difficult position because of the way the story was investigated and ultimately revealed to the public. These employees from Jefferson North have been off work for more than two years. The time has come to put this situation behind us and resume our focus on building quality products that will firmly establish Chrysler Group's position in the marketplace."

You don't need to call the "Bull" flag...lol. Does the company and the union have a drug an alcohol policy? Don't speculate without knowing the facts. Most companies that I know of do have a policy that covers drugs and alcohol. Where I work our members agreed to the policy. My company cannot fire me without a positive test for drugs or alcohol. I am a member of a union.

PS. They can fire me for other reasons but to use substance abuse as an excuse I have to fail a drug or alcohol screen.
