Chrysler Group LLC says it was forced to reinstate 13 workers
Chrysler Group LLC says it was forced to reinstate 13 workers who were fired from its Jefferson North Assembly Plant two years ago after being filmed by a local television station drinking and smoking what the network suggested was a controlled substance before and during work.
“The workers followed the grievance procedure process outlined in the collective bargaining agreement between Chrysler and the United Auto Workers. The company denied all of the grievances, leading us to arbitrate the matter,” wrote Scott Garberding, vice president of manufacturing at Chrysler, on a company blog Monday.
He said Chrysler Group did not agree with the decision. Gaberding stressed that it would have preferred to keep the workers off the assembly line.
