follow the rules and give them the warnings and then fire them if they do it again..
with non union employees the rules are not always on paper and more warnings are given in most cases more time spent rehabilitating them .. nothing is black and white like it is with a union contract..
I have seen management bend over backwards to Not fire a marginal employee that is no union in hopes that it will keep union reps from attempting to organize them..
Not saying I have ever done that but I have seen it in the past.. Personally I liked union employees as I had a great contract and the union rep was a wuss..
I have never fired some one arbitrarily always had the facts cold.. most of the time the morons that though being union was great and could not be touched were the easiest to fire..
Where the hell have you worked? I'd like to put my resume in so I can teach them how to run a business. See, there's this thing called at-will employment. You can fire anyone for anything or no reason at all. Union employees are protected against at-will employment due to union contract negotiations. At-will employees, you can terminate..."at-will".
Starting to think you've never spent a day in the workforce in your entire life.
