It sounds like what I am hearing about Oshawa. Use a big club on the workers and if it doesn't work we will supply you with a bigger one. GM knows that it is an employer's market these days and is taking full advantage of it. In Oshawa it is even worse because you can be working on several different vehicles going down the same line. The line speed has gotten to the point that the workers can't do their job properly causing quality problems. Companies have to make money but they have to build quality too. Management will lean towards numbers before quality every time. I was there for 41 years and got a pretty good idea as to how the company runs. The only people who think it is or has been easy working on the line are those who have never worked there.

I agree Keith. I work at GM Cami Assembly in Ingersoll and I know it is no picnic working on the line. Some of the discipline handed out these days for trivial things is ridiculous. I am fortunate in that I work in maintenance.
