Retaliation on Fontana Driver
Today a pro-union driver from the Fontana, CA terminal was escorted out of the premise on account that he stole company time. He was suspended last week for "sleeping" in the yard goat. According to Conway, he was inactive for over an hour, so they concluded he was asleep. He was actually working the entire time and has witnesses that can verify that. This is a misstep on Conway's behalf, this is a retaliation against the driver because he is pro-union. This should make an interesting case that will hopefully be heard by the NLRB. The company wants to put fear into the rest of us by doing this. We need to stay strong and support our brother. Bringing the union in will require a fight! The company will lie and intimidate. Just know your rights and document any abuse, any infractions. We will win this, we just need to stick together.
