Standards of Being the Best
UBC millwrights understand that the relationship between signatory employers and end-user customers involves a delicate balance.
The actions of just one individual can threaten whether an employer is considered for future work assignments. Unprofessional behavior and poor-quality work performance affect the livelihoods of fellow millwrights and jeopardize job opportunities.
The manner in which millwrights conduct themselves while on a customer’s premises reflects not only on the signatory employer, but on the area’s Local, MRCO and the UBC, as well.
That is why UBC millwrights are held to the highest standards during work and non-work related interactions with others, whether employees of the customer or other site employers.
Should it be determined that an individual is unwilling or incapable of satisfying these commitments by demonstrating a work practice or conduct that is detrimental to UBC millwrights’ overall interests, then corrective action will be mandated.
