    Ford cracks down on rest room breaks - 10/27/05 - By Louis Aguilar, The Detroit News
    The length of bathroom breaks may seem minor, but Ford's attention to it reflects the intense pressure on U.S. automakers and parts suppliers to improve factory performance and cut costs amid fierce competition from more-efficient foreign rivals.

    Ford supervisors will begin collecting weekly data on the amount of time workers spend on bathroom breaks and 'respond appropriately,' the memo said.

    Several workers are crying foul. They say the real issue is that sales of the Expedition and Navigator have been plummeting for much of the year as high gasoline prices prompt consumers to switch to more fuel-efficient models.

    When times get tough, some managers at Michigan Truck get 'petty,' said Jody Caruana, a Michigan Truck hourly worker and a committee member for United Auto Workers Local 900, which represents workers at the plant.
