Re: reduce costs?

Give it a rest. Youre talking about a minority of union workers. The overwhelming majority of us are all hard working people, and care about the prosperity of our companies more than our damn CEO's and board directors. WE are the ones that care about YOU.
The company cannot fire these people for poor performance as the union wont let them.
The only thing they can do is hope one of them fails a drug test or does not clock in on time too many times so they can be fired.
It is amazing that the union sticks up for these slackers.
One guy got caught sleeping twice on his shift and on video, was fired and the union fought it to get his job back. Other union employees caught him sleeping, but of course the union says they cannot be witness to it.
They said it was the workers word versus the supervisors and the video shows the worker with his eyes closed, but that does not mean he was sleeping. Essentially they called the supervisor a liar even when video backed him up. What a joke.
Why do unions force companies to pay for bad workers??? Why would they not want to fire the bad ones so that a good worker can be hired in place??

Problem is a good worker is more productive.. which means less union jobs which means less political clout.

Blame the unions for bad workers all you want. The only bad or lazy workers exist in unions only.
Seriously, there are lazy people everywhere, just look around for crying out loud. And for those of you who think that its ok to buy something cheaper elsewhere, unless it is the exact same product, you do get what you pay for. Try building a car on "cheap" parts and tell me how much money you saved over 2 years!
