Proof goes up in smoke
You'd better be sitting down if you haven't already heard about this.
Two years ago a television news crew, operating on a tip from a worker at Chrysler's Auburn Hills, Mich., plant that co-workers were drinking and smoking marijuana on their lunch break, filmed the workers in the act.
The brass at the plant were presented with the evidence, and as you might expect the 15 workers seen in the videos were let go.
But, the workers filed a grievance with the United Auto Workers, and an arbitrator for the union said this week that there was “insufficient conclusive evidence to uphold the dismissals,” according to Chrysler.
And, all of the workers are back at work.
During the news broadcast this week about the finding, the video of the workers was shown. I thought it was pretty clear and damning evidence.
What the arbitrator saw is anybody's guess. Maybe the arbitrator was smoking up before he handed down his ruling.
