Conclude the death tax is not serious.
That the Chrysler factory workers that were caught on camera smoking weed and drinking on the lunch break because as you know one -- a couple of jobs back.
You may record thirteen -- -- fire that.
Thanks to the unit and the union contract Chrysler up rehire them whole so let's bring in rob wal check the investigator.
In Detroit he broke the story two years ago he's been following it all the way through all right raw.
My obvious question is these guys have got their jobs back.
Do they get back do you know whether they do one.
I do not know whether they -- you are not I asked that question in fact when I talk to that girl from Chrysler.
When I first found out about this on Friday that they got their jobs back.
I talked or -- after much questions I was kind of.
Shocked and flabbergasted even though you would call that you said that they we're gonna get their jobs back a couple of years ago see you are absolutely right about that -- But anyways when I clocked at her -- a pot I hung up the phone and I -- subplot about an exit might actually got to find out if they're getting -- back pay.
And I call the backing all this -- you kind of clammed up and said that.
It was a personnel matter and she couldn't say if they got back -- so I could not tell you if they got back pay or not.
I would speculate that they did.
I look at -- they -- all the jobs back because of what's written in the union contract.
I don't know what's written -- the union contract but I would presume.
That if you reinstated from -- -- from which you have being fired you get back I'm that's pure speculation on my part I haven't read the union contract.
But that's what I think -- question Roth I thought I'd go public go ahead -- -- have got.
Well I was -- good thing I would speculate the same thing also with her answer.
I would think that if there was no back pay they would definitely say all there was no back pay because Chrysler wants to save a little bit of pace here but.
So that's why I kind -- think -- Is another one who appointed the arbitrator.
Who gave the jobs back to -- these thirteen people who went back to woke.
Under the influence of alcohol and marijuana who appointed that all of -- trying to.
Well I can tell you that question I just don't have an answer that you know they have an arbitration process they have lawyers all involved.
You know this is stop that I'm not in the loop of so I don't know but.
You know I I know that a lot of cases have gone before arbitration and they've gone the other way because -- -- the people.
Who had said you know I got fired from.
One of that Big Three auto makers for one thing or another and I know that the auto makers.
Oftentimes win out in the UAW's sometimes went out.
In this case even Scott -- from Chrysler's that this was a unfortunate aberration.
Well second on the you don't you don't a lot of -- because the big other jobs back because they did what they did.
On their own time and off company profited.
I believe that's and I guess it.
Yeah -- I believe facility that was call off duty time.
Apparently they're not paid for lunch they had their last half hour lunch break and they're off quality.
And were out bought stuff puts you exactly -- -- don't forget that went back to look under the -- of what they dumped on their own time all absolutely I mean.
Yes absolutely and I and I think that's Chrysler's point that's Chrysler does not want people in the factory working like -- Chrysler absolutely.
That the show they have the higher these guys that.
Good example I think we can all agree on this union power and the power of a union contracts very important stuff.
-- -- always doing stalling look out narron Detroit's on the subject in particular.
Thanks very much indeed for joining -- -- appreciate it.
Thank you Stuart.
