Oh stop about the lazy cry baby union workers...although NYS union workers have not done industry any favors.

LMAO at Dawn Lazovic.

Probable truth, Daimler and their Ex-Pats sent over to do anything were intolerant, not understanding of the existing business culture, forced systems into place that couldn't/wouldn't/didn't work causing ineffective 'work-arounds, and were outrageously over budget with their arrogance.

Add to that legacy grudges, departmental finger pointing (let's take weeks to figure out who was responsible when a fix could be in place in days), the overall lack of accountability and holding people accountable, a few screw-up not downs and some arrogant lunatics.

Add in an inefective sales team, bids team,contracts team, engineering team, purchasing team, quality team, union production and a MANAGEMENT team who all fall under the legacy grudge finger pointing crapola.

There is the recipe for plant closure.

Truly sad thing is....the place was turning a page. Fleet defects and warranty claims were coming to an end, multi-disciplined teams were in place to deal with the (few) new contracts that were coming in and successfully getting those buses through all stages to a timely delivery to difficult customers. WMATA to name one.

Bottom line IMHO, Daimler pulled the plug because their Melonie, Danijel,Oliver, Ludwig, Marcus, the fat guy with the mismatched socks and others were arrogant, went over budget (you should have seen the perks they got),thought OBI should run like Germany and were unwilling to accept anything other than what they knew.
(Not to say there weren't some Ex-Pats who tried, they did and pretty much they got screwed in the end).

Like I said earlier...really sad thing is....the place was turning the corner. And while everyone working there, union or not, shares responsibility for their ineffectiveness and lack of accountability, my opinion.....Daimler bailed.

Still lmao at the Dawn Lazovic response.
