It was recently announced by the Company that our Rouge members now have access to Yammer. We welcome any opportunity for our membership to integrate and share their experiences. However, we feel that now is a good opportunity to provide some advice specific to social media use.
Yammer, like Facebook and other social media platforms, is a public forum and anything posted may be subject to scrutiny by the employer. Don’t post anything that you wouldn’t want your manager to read.
While the Union never endorses the reporting of our colleagues’ behaviour, Yammer is certainly not the place to be doing this. This kind of divisive behaviour has no place on social media.
As always, use proper reporting channels for safety related issues.
