So I guess I will have to watch what I do during work hours.
    Here in the great state of Idaho, we, by law, get an unpaid lunch and two paid 15 minute breaks.

    I guess the laws vary by state as suggested earlier.

    I'm pretty sure I have never signed a 'Non Disclosure' agreement with any company I have ever worked for. Also I don't think mass company wide emails are 'privileged' communications.

    That being said let me say this. Don't jeopardize your current employment by posting emails. Right now jobs are getting harder to find and to blow yourself up for any reason isn't smart.

    Now we all know that this job has enough to bitch and complain about, we all know these companies like to keep information close to the vest whenever possible, the bigger the company the more they like to play the 'top secret' game. Unless your check starts bouncing or not showing up all together, unless you are being told to violate company policy and procedure (knowing full well it's YOUR ASS on the line), it's best just to go about your business and do your job the best way you can.

    Petty bullshit WILL GET YOU FIRED. It will also get you black balled from future employment.

    We saved your asses!!!!!!!!

    SM&P and there antiquated BS could nt survive on its own...Then we had to accept most of that framework hampering our execution and lowering our benefits...

    Our managers constantly talked numbers and damages coming from the SM&P side and how they are holding back earnings and our having to carry you all....




    Its been a downhill slide ever since...

    You should only post about things you really don't care if the whole world knows about it. This is a public forum... if you can't say something that you don't want repeated... don't post it here.

    Hey Sic1 if SM&P is really that bad why is it all of the wrecked truck pictures they put out are of CLS trucks? By the way, we are still producing here in Texas - no layoffs here.

Just incase. I have a feeling it's CLS in Tampa that contacted Steve. I bet $500 bucks the complainer was from Florida

    You are so spot on with this. That is what I was trying to say in my last post. Watch your backside or it will be getting hit by the preverbial door.
