Company Playing Mind Games With Union

     The company I currently work for is keeping some very important information away from the union. Information that may be a life or death thing, and the union does not like it at all.

     As I have stated before in my previous post Union and Company Need a Culture Change, either side believes the other and there is absolutely no trust among the two.

     At our headquarters about a month ago, a union employee had been reprimanded for some activity that the company did not see reasonable. Here is where the shit starts to hit the fan, because the union employees want answers that the company is not giving.

     Rumors, in a workplace like this, are being spread to everyone to and from every direction, and nobody knows exactly what to believe.

     Because of this fact with the rumors, and the fact, that this morning, a statement was read from the head supervisor of the building, no questions were answered. All this head supervisor read to us was that anybody who sees the said employee on the premises is to report the sighting to their field leaders or to the company security immediately.

     Questions about this employee’s firing, discharge, quitting, sick time off, vacation or assault on a supervisor went unanswered. The union members have no clue of what is going on and neither do some of the company employees.

     We all feel that some bit of information for the safety of everyone is not too much to ask. But it seems that the company wants to keep mum on the subject and will take the chance that nothing bad will happen.

     But what if something bad does happen? What if this said employee is dangerous, like rumored, and the company is not telling?

     Will the company be willing to pay out on lawsuits? Because there will be plenty coming their way.

     Is this said individual a threat? Did this person make a bodily threat to a supervisor and is the company keeping this secret?

    If so, why is there a big secret? Is it because of the pending lawsuit from this individual against the company? Does the company really find it necessary to keep hush any kind of information that may make employees feel more at ease, or does the company like to play head games with it’s employees?

     Whatever the reason, everyone who is out of the loop on this, feels the tension in the air and it really is unfair.

     Isn’t it the responsibility of the company to keep everyone safe?
