WIS INTERNATIONAL SHANE NEWTON THREATENS AND BULLIES EMPLOYEES AND RIPS OFF THEIR MONEY WINNIPEG, Manitoba
This letter is concerning WIS International, inventory counting,
110-420 Rue Des Meurons, Winnipeg, Manitoba - (204) 669-6505
On December 22, 2010 I attended a training seminar-interview
and i was truely disgusted at how the training was conducted,
by one Shane Newton using threats and bullying employees.
On jan 4 2011, spoke with rob daliwater head of human resources head office
for wis canada, and he confirmed that the 3 hour presentation from 9am-12noon
was in fact considered as work. Under employment standards canada, only training
is not paid, spoke with don at employment standards and he confirmed that yes
they have to pay people for the work presentation.
1. We were told the reason we were brought in is because he was firing
10 people, do we really need to know he was firing 10 people,
this to me is a scare tactic, and bullying to intimidate new
2. Then he went on to tell us about one girl who called and
text messaged him on his cell, asking for a friday off for a special event.
He goes on to say how he checked her schedule and saw that she wasnt on
lunch or break, and he texted her back telling her, she has every friday
off from now on and that she is fired. Again humiliation and embarassing
fellow employees, and trying to intimidate the new employees in training.
3.Also he said that he will kick people out of his work room, if he feels
that they dont belong,this person is mean and sadistic, and cant even
have the common courtesy or decency to wait till after the work presentation to
tell people that they are not hired.
4.He told us how he likes to embarass and redicule people who are few minutes
late for his workshop and how he embarassed a gentleman the day before and
rediculed him in front of the whole workshop class. Then saying how he was
disapointed that no one was late today ,so that he could humilate and
embarass that person today
5. Also he told us how he will be watching us, and spying on his workers
from hidden locations and that we wouldnt even know when he would be
spying on us, this to me is intimidation. I have never heard anyone
else saying how they will be spying on their employees like this before.
6.He told us hours were given on performance, saying that if you werent one
of the fastest workers you barely got any hours, but he told us
that he posted 38 hours of work available on the canada govt job bank,
he is using lies to bring in new employees.
7.He told us that we couldnt go home, when our shift was done
and that we had to go to the other stores and help them finish,
alot of people have children, and this is not fair to them to
have stay longer than their schedule, again no respect for
people or thier private lives.
I myself was humilated and embarassed during this group workshop,
even though i was helping the lady beside me with her scan gun,
i forgot to write down the numbers of the row during a scan,
rather than just point out and explain the minor mistake,
he told me to get my stuff and leave the building. I was
insulted, humiliated and never felt so small in my life.
He could have had the courtesy to talk to me after the
workshop class wait 15-20 minutes. Instead he felt he needed
to show his power of intimidation. Is this how a workshop class
Tuesday May 17, 2011 spoke with the labour board,
Michele Zyla, said she spoke to Rob Daliwater
and Rob apparently changed his story and lied
and now claims it was a traning session,and
also wis even had an employee who was in the training
session to go against me, but this employee was not
on the phomne with rob daliwater, i was. On Jan 4 , 2011 he told
me on the phone it was work, it has been sent up to the supervisor
Donna McDonald who will look into it, but cant over turn the decision
of her worker. Why is it the labour board takes the side of
big business and doesnt beleive the job seeker. Wis is a crooked
lying company spread this letter to all your friends, lets make this
letter reach 1,000,000 people, let wis know we wont be bullied
or threatened by shane newton
