Union Company Working To Eliminate High Workers

Tower Defense and Aerospace, a Detroit company that makes parts for tanks and Humvees for the military as well as civilian aircraft is accused of hiring workers who drank and smoked marijuana on the job.

Last Tuesday, a Detroit affiliate of Fox aired a report that showed workers rolling blunts and drinking alcohol in the parking lot of the plant during their lunch break.

Since the story broke, the company, which receives defense contracts worth several million dollars each year from the Federal government, reportedly has fired 17 employees and is conducting an investigation into the incidents. The company issued a statement saying that it was “working as expeditiously as possible within the bounds of the legal union contract” to eliminate employees who get high on company time and replace them.

The company’s CEO Mark Malcolm said that the problem employees were inherited when Tower was taken over by new owners last April.

“It is important to remember that the overwhelming majority of employees are dedicated and hard working,” he said. “None of the suspended employees were hired by Tower; all were inherited in the acquisition.”
