Hi, so I don't know if this has been addressed or not on this site before or not (I tried searching the forums but couldn't find anything) so I apologize if this is a duplicate thread. Today in my building they announced that all inside employees can no longer bring backpacks or bags in to the building. Lunch boxes and such are fine but no mesh strap bags, backpacks, or anything of that sort will be allowed. I was told that this was a company policy practiced country wide and our facility needs to "start" doing it as well. Is this a thing? Are backpacks not supposed to be worn or had in building at all? I'm a PT supervisor and a lot of my people in my area have bags to either carry their lunches, an extra set of work gloves, yard safety vests, etc... Some people even carry medicines in their bags. I don't know if this is company policy or my building's management just trying to push the employees even further. I know management sucks in general but I try to do my best to abide my the union contract and make sure the people in my building are well provided for. I don't want their backpacks taken away if it is just some corporate trying to look good. Thanks for any information provided.
