Chrysler Auto Workers Give New Meaning To The Two Martini Lunch


Chryler has indefinitely suspended 15 workers that left for a local park at lunch to drink alcohol and smoke pot. The employees were spotted in the park day after day by a local TV reporter Rob Wochek acting on a tip from fellow plant workers.

Scott Garberding, Senior Vice President – Manufacturing :

I‘m very, very disturbed about what I just saw in the video and I want to make it clear that we at Chrysler take it very seriously. For us this behavior is totally unacceptable and will be dealt with swiftly. In fact, we’ve already identified a few of the people involved in this incident. Each of them has been suspended indefinitely, without pay, pending further investigation. We’ll continue to pursue this in fact, until we’re done.

What’s difficult about this is these few people, who exhibited bad behavior, have painted a bad picture what’s an outstanding assembly plant, filled with outstanding committed Chrysler employees at Jefferson North. I want to make it clear that we’re proud of our plant, we’re very proud of the people at Jefferson North.

Lastly I want to say that when we build a vehicle we go to a lot of detail to make sure that even a few people in a situation like this, in fact cannot affect the quality of the vehicle. We have detail systems in place to make sure that every operation is completed and we do multiple-redundants to ensure quality of the vehicles we make.
