    Advice to Management

    Enforce parity among operators. When operators arrive tardy or intoxicated, counsel them. When their peers see them being reprimanded and recorded in their file it will raise morale. Also, let their performance or lack there of reflect on their end of year bonus, this will certainly bring satisfaction.
