Fredericton, New Brunswick -- March 20, 2018 -- After seeing a social media post featuring the Fix Auto Fredericton team wearing their “be a buddy not a bully” t-shirts, Collision Repair magazine reached out to find out more about the anti-bullying initiative.
Nick Perry, general manager of the location, says the company has been involved with the initiative in association with its partner dealership Riverview Ford Lincoln for the last three years. “We don’t like bullies in our workplace. It’s becoming big on social media and there have even been changes to New Brunswick’s workplace safety regulations for anti-bullying.”
The two dealerships sell the “be a buddy not a bully” t-shirts (mostly to their own employees) and donates all the proceeds to “Linking Lives,” a local charity in the Fredericton area which focuses on helping local families in need by supplying food, clothing and other necessities. This year the partnership sold 85 shirts total. The t-shirts for the anti-bullying program were provided by Club Fred Graphix who is also a huge supporter of the initiative, according to Perry.
“Times have changed a lot and we want to make everyone aware we don’t want bullies working with us. If you are a bully you won’t be working for Fix Auto Fredericton,” says Perry. “It also gives everyone comfort in working here. When we have new recruits or students coming in, it’s an intimidating place to work to begin with, without having someone add to that."
