Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Greenfield, MA

I have been working at Kennametal

Pros

Getting a pay check every 2 weeks, good health insurance, thanks to our union,good benefits, thanks to our union

Cons

Very little communication from Latrobe to us, poor communication from the plant manager - does not want to settle grievances, so everything is going to arbitration.2 years ago you enjoyed working there,now it's just the opposite. The plant manager is very controlling and it's either his way or the highway. He signed a contract with the union and does not honor it. He instituted Lean, which is not working the way it's supposed to be.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start getting involved with the people and find out how it's really being run, and not just a flyby, really get involved with everyone
