What I can't seem to locate is the reason this Jairo Reyes was fired in the first place.
But let's face it, when you try and strong arm a company, they don't often take it real well. And rightfully so.

A friend had a tucking company with drivers. They threatened to join a Union and the owner said if you do the company is closed.

They joined and he closed the company.

Have a friend that's not sure why a tucking company would need drivers. Then he cuts off his nose to spite his face? Your friend doesn't sound too bright.

That would not be the first time. I know of a steel mill in Illinois that did exactly the same thing. Workers wanted to unionize, went on strike, and ended up unemployed when the mill owner closed up and retired to Mexico. Wasn't worth the hassle to him.

And if that doesn't work, they will hire lawyers and sue to try and get their way. Bunch of crybabies. But I'd still like to know what the original guy was fired for.

Many business owners have invested their lives in the company. Many, because of their investment, are independantly wealthy. In other words their work has been very fruitfull, unlike living on welfare. So they have mobillity to shut the door of their company. They might also decide to move to where they don't have Union issues.

The owner may decide to simply retire instead of going forward with a company composed of Union whiners who want to run the company into the ground.

I remember a trucking company off of 85th & 35W that locked out the union. Protesters sat out front for around a year before the business closed down completely.

Boy are you stupid. What have I told you about working on your reading comprehension. Jairo Reyes was the first guy who got fired and prompted the other drivers to go on strike to protest his firing. Domenick DeDomenico was the driver who was in a coma for ten days.

"The unionized drivers at the Maspeth facility walked off the job for 90 minutes Feb. 26 to protest the firing of long-time employee and union activist Jairo Reyes"

Look before you leap.

Makes for a morale compass bagger style I guess.

Employees not considered to be investing their lives in the company, ask for compensation representing their commitment/contribution, bagger says "I'm a 1%er already screw you and your family".

You are SO full of BS

Asking is not the same as demanding, or expecting.

IF an employee performs at a good level doing his/her best and contributing to the profits of a company AND the company doesn't go broke that employee will probably do well and can retire with a pension IF one is included in their compensation.

Everyone has the ability to start their own company and invest their sweat and cash to attain wealth OR go broke and end up with nothing.

As someone else said of your comment "ask for compensation" is a bit different than going on strike and maybe killing the company.

Of course you can go to work for the Government and have a very secure job WITH good pay and be assured a pension, that is an attractive option.

A sister knows a DFL Legislator from southren Minnesota. The Legislator told her the DFL platform does not allow any shrinkage of Government employee headcounts.

Of course you know what that means, for those that don't know what it means, going forward even if technology changes allowing a function to be performed with NO STAFF the Government cannot reduce the head count that performs that function.

The DFL position on headcount is clearly asinine. Mangement must have the latitude to adapt to new technology and reduction of headcount or Government is doomed to fail with all kinds of staff sitting on their butts doing nothing.

Reductions can be made when people retire or leave employment with no forced reductions.

However having said that the DFL charter is rediculas!!

No doubt for the next 25 years we will still have a staff of 40 or so collecting and processing the metrodome tax.

The union agreed the walkout was “illegal and unauthorized" AND IBT Local 804 agrees to compensate UPS for damages associated with the loss of productive employee time, other company costs and the negative impact on goodwill relating to the February 26 unauthorized walkout and related actions.

Yes, UPS did rescind that order. Instead they were suspended for a period of time so UPS could recoup their lost income due the the drivere illegally striking in the first place.

http://www.triplepundit.com/2014/04/ups-backs...

includes a no-strike clause, a company spokesperson told the Huffington Post.

UPS fired 20 of the workers after their shifts last Monday and sent termination letters to the remaining 230, informing them that they would be fired once the company trained their replacements. Instead of the mass firings, UPS will suspend the employees for two weeks without pay and recoup monetary damages stemming from the walkout from Local 804, according to a news report in the Times Ledger, a weekly newspaper serving Queens.

“Local 804 officials acknowledged that the Feb. 26 walkout was illegal and unauthorized and will undertake other actions within the bargaining unit to correct the situation,” UPS spokesman Steve Gaut said in an email to the Times Ledger.“UPS has chosen to settle the matter in order to return to normal operations at the site.”

Not exactly a "huge win" for the union.
