Social media posting is forbidden and could lead to termination, based on Non-Disclosure/Confidentiality agreements previously signed by individuals and/or their employers.

The implications this could have on security and our work environment would impact and devastate all of us for the entire run.  Longer check-in lines, vehicle searches, bag searches, etc.; these measures could become a daily occurrence as a result of these posts. Not to mention, the above implied additional security and due process would come at a cost, a cost that no one wants to pay. So from here on, please make sure everyone is aware of the following;
