Aditya was hired by an auto parts manufacturer for its maintenance function.He has excellent knowledge of the machines and the production peoplevalue his advice.However Aditya is a thoroughly incompetent worker. He is often late, takeslonger breaks than anybody else, works very slowly, makes lots of mistakes and leaves other people to clear up after him. The Plant manager, Sudhir, put up with Aditya for two years until finally hefound an adequate replacement. Then he tried to fire him. But Adityacomplained to his union that his dismissal was unfair because he hadnever had a performance appraisal to warn him that his work wasunsatisfactory. In fact, he said self-righteously, in the absence of a formalappraisal he felt entitled to assume his work was well up to standard. The company does have and annual written performance evaluation system,but Aditya’s immediate supervisor, Krishna, just never seems to get roundto doing the appraisals; and in fact hasn’t done any for the last threeyears. Every time he gives and average rating to all maintenance peopleand the organization gives increments and hike accordingly. The question now is, what arguments can Sudhir and Krishna, come up with,to satisfy the union representative that Aditya’s dismissal is justified? Canthey do it? Or will they be stuck with Aditya for ever?
Case 2: The ethical dilemma
Assume that you work for a midsized non-unioncompany. The firm is facing its most serious union-organising campaign in years, and your boss isdetermined to keep the union out. He has asked youto do the following:
He wants you to look at the most recent performanceevaluations of the key union organisers and toterminate the one with the lowest overall evaluation.
When you question the ethics and legality, heexplained that if the union wins, the company mightclose down its Indian operations altogether and moverto low cost foreign plants.
What would most managers do? What would you do?
