Nearly 200 Muslim workers were fired for walking out of their jobs at a Colorado meat-packing distribution plant in a dispute over accommodating prayer in the workplace.
CAIR, the terror-tied Muslim Brotherhood organization, is involved in the negotiations. Cases like this – especially when CAIR is involved – are meant to incrementally enforce conformity to Muslim practices.
The union had already said they would take it up during the next round of negotiations.
Cargill Meat Solutions told about 190 Muslim workers to pray at home instead of in a specially designated room at the plant segregated from other religions.
Cargill stated that there is a reflection area for use by all employees to pray since April 2009 and is available during work shifts. They say they have made reasonable efforts and accommodations. They can’t necessarily make these accommodations every day.
Cargill said in its statement that the workers were fired only after “multiple attempts were made to discuss the situation with local Somali employees without a successful resolution, including a Tuesday meeting at the plant management’s request.”
“Plant management and union representatives met with Somali leaders without resolution,” the statement said. “Based on company policy, employees who do not show up for work, or call in, for three consecutive days were are risk for termination of their employment. Efforts were made to communicate to employees who did not show up for work to ensure they understood their jobs would be at jeopardy.”
Based in Wichita, Kansas, Cargill has 155,000 employees in 68 countries, according to a company fact sheet.
The 400 other Muslims who did not walk out are still employed.
Will Obama’s EEOC jump in to force a private company to provide excessive and unreasonable accommodations for Muslim workers?
Is it Islamization if a private company is made to offer special accommodations in a special location several times a day, even if it will negatively impact the company?
A trucking company, Star Transport, Inc. recently lost a suit brought by the EEOC to Muslim truckers and had to pay $240,000 in damages for not reassigning the drivers who balked at delivering pork. Most of these types of suits are meant to accommodate stifling Muslim practices. They were given the right to say what they would or would not deliver. No truckers have that kind of power.
Now we have a case of 200 Muslim workers who were fired for walking out of their jobs at a Colorado meat-packing plant in a dispute over accommodating prayer in the workplace.
Bakers in Oregon are being forced to bake cakes for gay marriages but will Muslims be protected but the government in their case against a private company?
