Insubordination constitutes non-conformance with proper requirements expected and demanded by Management.
Insubordination involves established violation of rules, per se; but is mainly confined to unacceptable personal conduct and work refusal.
Unacceptable personal attitudes include:
Verbal Abuse: Certain shop talk may be acceptable. However, expletives against Management may be chargeable. It is possible to degrade and insult using proper English.
Work refusals followed by work performance in a reasonable time are generally not chargeable.
Failure to follow an order is generally chargeable.
