    Not with a union contract you wouldn't: sick days... And I see that you practice management thuggery.

    yep and I can require a doctors note before you can return to work.
    PS also if you are protesting on a sick day that is fraud.

    sick days are to be used for being sick not protesting. you can still be fired.

    not at all. it is called standard business policy.
    if you don't show up for work you get fired.

    I'm pretty sure even a union contract requires you to inform your employer when you are sick.

    Do you think not showing up for work or calling in sick is perfectly okay? How is it "management thuggery" to expect your employees to show up for work? Personally, I would probably cut an employee some slack a couple of times, but if he/she made a habit of not showing up to work or calling off, they would need to be let go. Do you disagree?

    I don't know if it is still true, but a few years back, Walmart had the highest proportion of millionaires in its workforce of any company in the nation. You did your job, you got promoted, you took advantage of the financial perks offered, and you were well rewarded.

    That's not management thuggery, that's sound business practice.

    working hard for a company, and hoping to advance in the ranks, as the company guides you through a system of internal promotion.

    the only people showing up to protest are union thugs that should be working.
    Under the law, what they're doing is illegal.

    it should build on that system, and an employee union can help that to happen.

    Anyone can require a doctor's note.

    In a contract, sick days are used for any purpose: some times people have important appointments. So your "fraud" charge is just hyperbole and trying to make some sort of point.

    Your version of standard business policy BTW attracts an organizing drive. People don't want to have to put up with management thuggery. People deserve better.

    Fair enough, on that we agree. Thanks.
