ROW’s reputation of being a racist place of employment is not just a rumour. Management and HR are full aware racism, discrimination and bullying happen and yet they condone these practices.

There are a lot of grey areas so the ball is always in mgmt court. They thrive themselves on discipline and termination, treat employees likev5 years olds. Cold callous narcissistic mgmt that might as well be wearing white sheets. Councilors are aware but choose to turn a blind eye and deaf ear to the dysfunction.

My co workers are decent,and work load is fair however were are the lowest paid mechanics out of any other municipality! They need more shop tools esp regarding electronics, and need updated tooling,ie; our torque wrench is 25yrs old? Can only calibrate it so many times! That's our 3/4 drive torque wrench to which I'am referring for torquing wheels on big trucks to 500ft lbs Kind of important! The money is the real issue for me and for the other heavy techs !

This co-op term was my best by far- I learned about management, got experience conducting inspections, and learned how contracts worked by being in charge of them from start to finish.
