It's my guess you are referring to Bill Setser. He will be heading up
the Northern Region.  What you stated about his chop and fire mentality
has been confirmed as true.  Several supervisors who worked with him
have confirmed he did in fact make it well known that if they weren't
in the fields finding someone to fire they weren't trying hard enough
and were not doing their jobs.  If you can confirm any more factual
information in regards to his lack of ethical reasoning it would be in
the best interest of everyone to be made aware of his actions.  Some
may argue your post does not belong in the safety forum but they could
not be more wrong. When someone new comes to town and takes control
they ALWAYS COME ON FULL FORCE TO MAKE SURE EVERY ONE OF THIER LINE
STAFF UNDERSTAND EXACTLY WHAT KIND OF POWER THEY HAVE! There will be
pressure on the supervisors to show their ability to follow his wishes.
If he is testing them to see which ones can cut the mustard and have the
back bone to fire workers in the field without hesitation they will all
be head hunting without any regards to the rules. This is going to
cause a frenzy in the field and create serious moral problems and
hostile work environment. This in turn creates an unsafe working
environment.  Follow the rules to a tee.  Do not make a single move if
you are in doubt of the exact rule governing the job. We all know the
supervisors have a history of twisting and turning the rules to favor a
failure if they need one bad enough. It has always been this way and
will never change. Do not be afraid to pull your rules book out and
argue the fact if you are wrongly charged. There are major changes
coming to the company and a lot of new heads of state taking over. With
new operation changes and changing of seats there will be pressure out
in the fields. Do your best to follow all rules IN WRITING and contact
your local chairman and General Chairman of all NEW VERBAL RULE CHANGES
the supervisors quote to you as a new rule that has never been put in
writing.
