A union representing Muslim workers at a JBS Swift & Co. meatpacking plant plans to file grievances over the firing of up to 150 workers in a dispute over religious accommodations, a spokesman said.
At issue is a request by Muslim workers to be able to take lunch breaks at sunset to end their fast during the holy Muslim month of Ramadan. As many as 300 workers walked out of JBS Swift & Co. on Friday before their shifts ended, and the union had been in talks with the company.
All they asked was that their break time be shifted to take in to account their religion. Why a company would be so brain-dead is beyond me. Maybe they can post an explination here.
