UPS To Fire 250 Queens Workers For Protesting One Employee's Dismissal: Gothamist
This is the most updated article that i have found.
250 Drivers at the Queens UPS store have been dismissed due to walking out of the job protesting another drivers dismissal.
The walk out was not an authorized or part of the contract that allowed them to do this. for 90 minutes they walked off the job encouraged by their union rep.
The company has dismissed 25 of them already and the other 225 will be let go as soon as replacements are found.
The person the protest was about was let go over time sheet issues.
I feel bad for these guys but according to the article they were warned if they walked off that it was not a proper walk out and there could be risks.
of course now they are up in arms but they chose to ignore the warning.
the other 1150 employee's will keep their jobs.
