Anyone who works for Yates Services make sure you don't get injured on the job because if you do they will try to fire you!!

They have been doing that for years Rose. Thats the problem with manufacturing jobs, as long as you are there and produce, everything is ok, but get hurt an make them spend money then out the door you go. But with the cheap labor temps , it is worse. You are just a number, for that matter i am too.

I am a forklift driver in my current job. Plus, a dock door coordinator. Have experance in shipping, typing documants of bill of laden, team lead at one point. Started out as a temp and hired in 2005. This was for a large computer company. Would this fit well with Nissan?

nissyates, you seem to have the best advise. Jon is good too. Guy's I love my job and what I do. It's just upper managment is really on my last nerve. And I am not alone in this thought. 18 cent raise in the last 5 yrs and no bonus. Myself and the people I work with are ready to bail. Many of us are thinking Nissan.

Johndoe80, if you work somewhere else it dosen't matter what your qualifications are, you will be on assembly line. With the high turnover rate, chances are you probably won't make it. Nissan work is very hard to explain to someone who has not experienced it. Only reason we might, and i stress might get a raise is union threat in Canton. Nissan employees haven't had a raise in 7 years ourselves. If i were you i would stay where you are, no long term career at Nissan anymore.

Evening shift @ Nissan is a joke they use us to work most Saturday overtime cause they can I hope Nissan get whats coming to them some day. We asked our area manager if we had to work on Monday he says no & don't you know they scheduled only evening shift to work anyway after they hadn't even scheduled for us to work thats some DIRTY shit!!!

To associate, few weeks ago dayshift worked a Saturday while afternoon and night shift was home. They told us on Thursday, no warning in advance to make arrangements. They save money by bringing in afternoon shift to work Saturday because 90% on afternoon is temps, and we all know how they pay u guys. Don't worry though, after April 1st when new fiscal year comes, we all will be working 4 day work weeks from overproduction so management can get their fiscal year production number bonuses.

2nd shift always gets screwed so get used to it , if you work in the body shop you'll be lucky to ever get off at 2:06 .

Yates 2nd slave, good luck with union in here. Thats why they are promising temps nissan worker status, and supposedly giving Nissan people a long deserved raise, to keep U.A.W out. They will do the same thing they have always done to keep it out. Our highest raises have always been with union threat, so they will do that, plus a $1,200 bonus check, and a t shirt an dinner to keep it out. They don't pay temps crap, so a raise and bonus of that amount will make enough brainwashed to keep it out. Problem is not enough see that they do this to keep it out. Temps will have to get it in, not enough Nissan now. This is how they have kept it out in the past, and it worked, so they will continue to do this until people wise up, an i do not see that happening, so like i said good luck with that.

Good! I hope everyone will pull together so we can rid our workplace of all the bad treatment we receive from management. Its absurd what we go thru . We work our tails off and cant even get a thank you. We get hey btw you guys have to work saturday even though we have been telling you for two weeks your off. Or i know you gwt off at 2:06 but tonight your staying til 3:30(which is oretty much every long night we have). The upper management is going to get there big fat bonus checks and are going to be laughing all the way to the bank while we go to 4 day work weeks because we iver produced so they could get that precious check. Yea i am yates but they treat nissan employees the same. It makea me sick!!!

Yates 2nd slave, we have the power in that plant, we just have to unite, that is managements greatest fear. You temps are the majority now. Most around me are scared to vote it in. How do people feel around you? Management runs by intimidating people, have for many years. They will throw money and false promises. I would love to see it come in just to see if it is different. I know what we have now, and it sucks. They want to put a wedge between you guys and Nissan workers. Like i said, their greatest fear is all the shop floor men an women uniting against them. As a long time employee, i would love to see it.
