Dumb answer, obviously his performance is impacting their jobs because they do pick up his slack. Call
But the 1st question that needs to be answered is WHY do they pick up his slack? If they are doing it because they collectively catch hell if the work is not done, then yeah, its impacting them. But if they are picking it up out of some self imposed sense of duty, then they just need to stop and let him crash and burn on his own. I'm sure places like that do exist, but I've always been responsible for MY work. If Joe was not carrying his weight, that's between Joe and the boss. If the boss begins assigning me the crap Joe is f'n up, fine, but at that point, the boss is well aware of what an F up Joe is.

I took it to mean that they had a quota of some sort to meet, and in order to meet that, one piece depended upon the other. If you are paid by the piece, then you want to assemble as many pieces as possible for your paycheck. So it does you no good to just point a finger and say "He" is holding up the production run because its cutting into your bottom line.

I worked on a factory floor where we had quota's, and if we did not assemble because we were waiting on someone else, it just meant more pressure to catch up when the blockage was resolved.
And when I was moved into the machine room and actually was the cause of that blockage, those old biddies would come in there and chew me out for holding them up.

L1: When you get a pet, you're buying your future sadness. Be right back, I need to hug my sweet baybays.
Hug them again. Let em kiss you all over the face. I thought I'd be saying my last goodbyes today. My big boy has had 7 seizures in the last 24 hours. More in this stretch than he's had cumulatively in his entire life (about 5). 2 real bad ones last night within a few hours of each other, then more today(wife happened to be home). Left work and met her at vet. No serious issues. Need to start him on some mediction to manage the seizures. Hopefully those drugs start working in soon, cause he had another one since we've been home.

Sorry you and your wife are going through that, and your kids. That has to be heart wrenching!

Dude, that blows. Must be terrible to be so helpless when you see that.
Is it a genetic thing? How is it controlled?

When my cat had seizures, it was like an epileptic seizure -- twitching, bladder lost control, so we'd have to deal with a cat twitching in his own pee, etc. Poor guy.
