One thought on “Buddy System for Building-Side Mechanics

  1. Union and NAME of Local/Branch
    It’s simple, really, follow the contract and applicable work rules. Management cannot order you to perform an unsafe act.

    If it’s a 2 man route or repair and there’s only one building side employee present, it doesn’t get done.

    Make sure the MMs are doing MM work and not doing higher level work. If they are doing higher level work and it can be documented, grieve for higher level for the MMs and O/T for the BEMs.

    For this to work everyone (or a least a decent majority of the employees) has to be on board, which in our craft is unfortunately a rare occurrence.
