“Take 5” Minutes To Read This

There have been reports to the Hall that frontline supervisors are spreading rumors at pre-shift meetings (which have apparently morphed into LEAN meetings) that Paul Henning has said that the Union President and National Union Representatives have agreed to the Company’s new approach to “Take 5’s”, that is that they were to be mandatory, done before every task and that failure to do so could result in discipline.

First and foremost, frontline supervisors do not and should not even attempt to speak on behalf of your Union President or National Union Reps.
