A little off the subject of this thread. But, there is a lot of talk, chit chat, discussion and the ever present rumors about the reduction of working RDO`s and the daily over line time or O/T.

 

We all have heard the one that starts out with "It`s the new assistant plant manager" he wants to make a name for himself or he was sent here to get rid of all O/T.....

 

Then there`s the tired old rumor "they are reducing hour`s before they lay off 20% of the worlds work force" or they are going to lay off the C crew or the orders have dropped so much that they just don`t need this many people.....

 

Then there is the ever popular finger pointing, "if those guys didn`t do what they do" or "if they didn`t work through lunch" or " (insert whichever crew you`d like A,B,C) if the blank crew wasn`t going along with them and doing more than the blank crew has toooo"... we`d have our RDO work back.

 

Welp.... I`ll do a little finger point too. Put whoever you`d like right there in front of this finger pointing that you would feel best suits that spot. Here goes.

 

To make this less complicated lets just say, Ford needs to complete 10 units per crew.

 

On each of the three crews those ten units go by every work station in the plant and the work is done to add to each unit what it needs to make it roll off the line under its own power. Each crew member on all three crews is paid an agreed amount to do the work at their work station to add the parts to each of those 10 units everyday. Ford gets the agreed on 30 units per day. The crew members get the agreed on pay for those 10 units that pass by their work stations on every crew. Everyone is happy :love_shower:

 

Then comes the orders, Ford starts sweating just thinking about how will they fill these orders that are over the agreed on 30 units a day. :idea:  The three crews are completing their agreed on 10 units per crew. But our orders are now at 33 units a day and going up. First its not hard at all, Ford has the magic abilities to get ten percent over the agreed 30 units a day. I mean really what is one unit extra per crew? No one will ever know. The crew members are to busy completing their 10 units, talking to fellow crew members, blue toothin their girl friend in zone C, figuring out their FMLA paperwork and finding out who`s calling for pizza. The process coaches are putting in pay hours for the crew members, looking at e-bay on their computer, talking about the one who just got an LL6, figuring out how to get up to the office before the vender`s pizza gets cold, checking the board to make sure they`ll make 5 units before lunch and talking about why she got to be a senior process coach...Three extra units a day. No one is the wiser. No one is hurt by the ten percent line speed increase.

 

Then Ford starts thinking, :idea:  the orders are coming very strong and we can get ten percent over the agreed on 30 units a day without any increase in cost. No time and a half, no extra benefits... ooooo free labor. Hmmmm If the line can do ten percent over the agreed on rate and none of them (<--- yes it`s us and them) even noticed... why not fifteen percent? or twenty or twenty five????

 

Now at one extra unit a crew, three units a day, that puts 30 units extra every ten days in the bank. Yep, 30 units extra every ten days, that`s one full day of agreed on build units (30) free of all that pesky labor cost, no added hourly wages, no double time, no added hourly benefits, 30 units completely labor cost free. Nice....

Whats the old saying about gettin the milk for free?

 

Let`s not forget this is just a figment of the imagination of some old long hair. Ford would never, ever, try to get their milk for free.... besides we have the bessstest dairy farmers (IUAW) watching over the herd....

 

Ok...OK...OK!!!!! let the finger pointing beginnnnnn :spiteful:

Members of the 551 there is a new service that is being provided to you.

 

This service is not on the 551 web site... noooo? This service is not for all members...noooo?

 

This service is one of a clandestine type of service....whaaaa?

 

First .... this service is for those close to certain elected 551 members. Second .....this service benefits are for those members that have had one day, three days, a week or more discipline for that pesky attendance problem. Third ....a member has to know the secret phone number to call to attain this service. 

 

SHHHH The service provides a means in attaining excused time off SHHHH

 

If a member is running low on Personnel Business or Vacation Time and finds it still hard to have someone else to fill out their FMLA paperwork.... no problem!!!!!

 

Just call 773-646-1472 and when the recording secretary answers, use your very low tone voice to ask for the almighty "U" code wizzzz. When the U code wizzzz asks a few question and you pledge your highest authority you will be granted "EXCUSED TIME OFF" without a care in the world or even making a trip to see those smiling faces in LRO.

 

Now the members can take their freshly granted "U" code and dance the night away... :spiteful:

 

Ahhh the benefits of having elected officials that know how to serve the few, the proud, the ones with better things to do than come to work....

Might have something to do with the 4500 plus views of the posts or content.....?

 

The views will hit 10000 now that uaintworkin has added a deeply profound post. "Hot" will change to "Blistering Hot" now.... :devil:
