Safety Comes With Experience
Over 20 employees have been fired at the San Bernardino, CA terminal for safety violations. Violations that include things like driving in the yard without four way flashers on, leaving the forklift forks just inches off the ground and not putting chocks on. These are all minor things, things that wouldn't even cause management to bat an eye in a union barn. Conway just doesn't get it. How do they expect people to be safe when all they do is get rid of people after petty violation? The only way to truly be safe is to work on safety. People learn as they go. Maybe if they were more lenient, then people could come to work and improve at their job and at being safe. Another reason why union companies are among the safest. It's not by accident, it's because they're experienced.
