Arrow Two BMW employees drunk and stoned - on the job...

Name:  BMW Werk Munich  2,w=993,q=high,c=0.bild.jpg

Munich, March 20th, 2017


In today's Merkur.de (a Munich)newspaper... it has been reported that two employee's were so incapacitated, that EMT's were called in and the production line was stopped for forty minutes - back in early March. Seems the two employee's were drinking quite a lot of alcohol that day and then the decided to per take in some synthetic marijuana(called Spice over here). They were so incapacitated, they couldn't finish their work shift and passed out on the production "line". Their fellow coworkers called in the EMT emergency doctors and were taken to the hospital.

The incident happened in early March at the Munich Plant (3er sedans and wagons and M4's are made here). BMW AG acknowledges that this worker incident - cost BMW AG somewhere in the "five digits" - to stop the production line. "The damage amounts to an average five-digit amount," said the BMW spokesman.

This was the first time ever in BMW"s history, that the production line had to be stopped - due to an employee(s) being on alcohol or drugs. The future of these two BMW employees is uncertain.

I guess we have an answer to an earlier thread about an X5 with mismatched seats.

X5s, as well as all X cars except the X1, are made in BMW's largest production plant in Spartanburg, SC.

That's what I was thinking too. All the stories back then of people finding empty beer cans and booze bottles inside car fender wells etc.

Unions must be strong in Germany if this was the *second* time this has happened with these two employees.

I would imagine every car on the line will have to be checked and/or scrapped. The potential liability in the event one of those cars can be tied to one of those employees is enormous.
