What an awful company Jeld-wen has become!!!! I'm embarrassed to tell others that I worked for that company. If you work at Jeld-wen, remember this.....you have options! Find a good company before they force you out.

Jeld-Wen will never be a good company to work for again. The only hope is to unionize to make the company honor its obligation to its employees. Onex doesn't care about anyone except there own stockholders.

Global Woodworkers Union Condemns Jeld-Wen Labor Violations

Tue. July 23, 2013

Facing a disgruntled workforce and a grassroots IAM organizing movement, management at window and door manufacturing company Jeld-Wen are resorting to further labor violations to suppress and intimidate its workforce.

Builders and Woodworkers International (BWI), the world’s largest global union federation representing wood and construction worker unions, have found that a Jeld-Wen corporate leaflet distributed to employees “sent a clear message to every worker that their job is in jeopardy if they accept union leaflets.”

At a plant in Chiloquin, OR, supervisors violated U.S. labor law by using binoculars to see which employees would take union leaflets as they left work. Click here to see the BWI post detailing violations against Jeld-Wen employees and their right to organize.

The IAM launched an organizing campaign at Jeld-Wen, the world’s third-largest manufacturer of doors and windows, in response to numerous reports of unfair labor practices from Jeld-Wen employees across the U.S. and Canada. Since the effort began, Jeld-Wen management has made repeated efforts to silence its own employees and the IAM, including calling the police for an off-site hand billing, even though international labor standards prohibit interference in the union formation and selection process.

Click here to follow the campaign by “liking” the “Jeld-Wen Justice” Facebook page.

sad managment team

about
It is sad how are management team in Rocklin are nothing but yes men. I watched last year as the " brown-nose team" allowed Travis to fire employees for no reason, even lying about a can of chili, forging documents, and getting the company involved in a workers comp case. It is time for the Union, it feels weird coming from me, but the actions of cowardly uneducated management has convinced me current changes are temporary, fear of the union is the only reason our GM hands out checks, not his idea, in fact he never even had the balls to address the employee Travis fired over chili, pathetic our GM brown noses Travis too. Travisis daddy sure has pull...lol

raise

about
We at JW need a union. 4 years no raises, lots of mandatory overtime, and excess of 60 hrs working a week. Managers that think they own the employees, and a little pit bull who pushes all past the boiling point. Don't know what it's like in you're company, but that's what it's like in Ringtown, PA I'm definately in.
