They also have prayer rooms so the muslims can pray during the workday without leaving the plant. Yikes. (h/t Debbie Schlussel) . Imagine if a Christian employee wanted to pray during the workday. He'd be ridden out of town on a rail.
This is the beginning of the end. Muslims immigrate to this country and do not want to blend into our society. Their goal is simply to replace our democracy with their theocracy of death, destruction and domination, islamic sharia law.
Tyson Plant Drops Labor Day for Muslim Holiday
Tuesday, August 05, 2008
SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. — Workers at a Tyson Foods poultry processing plant in Tennessee have opted to trade a paid Labor Day holiday for the Muslim celebration of Eid al-Fitr.
A 5-year contract approved by members of the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union at the Shelbyville, Tenn., plant last November includes the change to accommodate Muslim workers.
"The negotiating committee made the holiday a top priority in contract talks," the union's Alabama and Mid-South Council Representative Randy Hadley said in a statement issued in June. "And we were able to get management to commit to it."
The change, which does not affect the company's 118 other plants, exchanges Labor Day for the Muslim holiday that marks the end of Ramadan. The new contract, negotiated last fall, also gives Muslim workers a prayer room.
"Eid al-Fitr is one of eight paid holidays for all team members covered by the contract, while Labor Day is not a paid holiday," Gary Mickelson, Tyson's media relations director, told the Shelbyville Times-Gazette.
Boycott Tyson products. Let them know you don't approve of their dhimmi attitude on dealing with these members of the 'religion of peace.'
Our country was founded on Christian ethics and traditions, not the ass-backward religion from the middle east. Ironic, as Debbie Schlussel says, that a labor union would vote to not get paid for the very holiday that celebrates their existence.
Vote with your pocketbook -- reject Tyson for their dhimmitude.
I'm just curious why it took nine months for this to come to light in the press? Read the rest of the article here at Fox News.
