    They must be really hurting for workers..or else managment just doesn't even care anymore...as far as I know that's about a "union cannot even defend ya on that one" situation...at least until off of work for awhile and then maybe one gets the job back after hearings....I got my job at redstar from a situation just like that...both were fired....but then they went under..so who knows what would have happened.

    That is about one of the worst things anyone can do under a union roof.
    By re-instating these people back to their jobs only establishes that the company tolerates a hostile work environment as well as opens the doors to lawsuits later down the road and a host of other issues.

    The union is not above the laws and clearly in a situation like this where bodily harm takes place one is not bound to seek remedies from the union.

    People need to think about how they interact with their fellow brothers.

    I agree, and it's a cardinal infraction offense. What a can of worms that was opened.

    I can only guess that no one actually witnessed anything, and won't admit it either.

    Was it a physical altercation or just hallway sex? You know, a couple of loud f. u.'s in passing?

    I go to 124 occasionaly and since the merger there is one guy that works the dock who is constantly telling everybody else what to do,that they should work harder, they should be grateful they got a job, stuff like that. It dose'nt matter what company he came from but man o man this guy is a company suck hole! To be honest with you i'm suprised this has'nt happened more across the country. The company has done nothing about the morale of the men.

    They don't give a rat's arse about the morale. They just want to beat us down a little further....Create a divide between us....I think that is the one and only thing they are doing right (thier eyes not mine) since the integration....They sure as hell can't run a freight company.

    well apparently it started as words then it came to blows in 124. and it doesnt matter if there were witnesses or not isnt that what the cameras are for. and the witness who was standing right there when it all happened didnt get called to work friday or monday. i guess from the outcome of the situation fighting is acceptable.
