Well based on this post, if she had a job; she doesn’t anymore.

I wouldn’t want that person building my vehicle, sitting in my vehicle, or even near it for that matter. If someone needs to be using a manual transmission for their job, one would think a test would be done to confirm the skill. If it’s something they are willing to train on they should do it before someone takes to social media.

However, using terse language while on the job in a social media setting is just bad form and lacks class and respect for your employer and their customers.

Just my .02

I suggest that there be monthly incentive awards for these workers in addition to an awareness program .. Does this help?

Have you seen the other posts on the FB page. My summary of them:

1. 45% are about working overtime, and making extra money. Most of these incinuate 'fuck this place I'm only here for the money.'
2. 30% fall into the 'only x more hours of this shit' category
3. 10% are about food and what they are eating.
4. 10% are pictures of pages in the bible and 'have a good day' type stuff.
5. Remainder are things like union propodanda and misc stuff.

I would do nothing. It's a union plant, so the culture here is 'your employer is trying to fuck you every chance they get so fuck them back.'. I don't think anyone (well most of them) there takes pride in their work. They are only proud of making the maximum amount of money for the minimal amount of input.'

There is not a single post of 'look at the first Willy's off the line' or 'damn this is a nice JT'

Unions are a cancer.
Sad to say it, but your right. The culture of a Union today is “protection” and a lack of “accountability” for the individuals actions. At least that’s my subjective observation with the Union I’m affiliated with.
