UPS Punishes Drivers for Prayer Meetings - Liberty Counsel
Bit yet we can have these fruit loops wearing man buns for religious reasons.
they are probably praying every morning hoping preload gets done on time..
No offense but I'd like to hear this story from a unbiased news source. I am in total agreement that drivers off the clock should be allowed to participate in this. I'm just skeptical that drivers were fired because of it. I think the site is trying to stir people up with that line.
Read the article. Doesn't make sense. The article wasn't very clear on those drivers fired. There has to be much more to this story.
Seriously if this story is true, it's really upsetting. It's not like these guys was handing out Bible's or praying at the PCM.
We used to have 4-5 guys that come in early once a week for bible study in the break room. It wasn’t a problem, but stopped when some went to the smart hub.
We have a few guys that do that here.
Looks like you're right.
Since then, several drivers with many years’ experience who regularly participated in the prayer meetings have been fired for what appears to be pretextual reasons.
They weren't fired for praying, but management found something to get them on. But without details, there's no way of knowing if it's related.
It's one thing if a couple of drivers want to have a little prayer before work in the parking lot next to their cars, or in a corner of a break room, I think that's okay.
But, the employer should definitely not allow big groups of people to have prayer meeting in public places on their property, such as the parking lot or break room.
This could be intimidating and or harassing to other employees.
I think the employer should offer a private area, such as a conference room or meeting room, where these employees can gather to have their morning prayers without intimidating or harassing others.
Meet off property. Problem solved.
What's the difference between PCM and prayer group?
God might listen to you. Supervisors never will.
Both trying to shift liability?
No snake handling by the oms?
You're being paid for PCM, and it is related to work
Well, that's not even a little bit funny!
What I prayed in the parking lot!
You can’t fire me now or I’ll sue!
Good luck with this non-sense, Christians are such crybabies.
Prayer and Religion have zero place at work.
