The Associated Press: Appeals court rules against Cintas
The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis affirmed a National Labor Relations Board decision against the Cincinnati-based company. The board found Cintas used unfair labor practices when it warned employees against wearing pro-union stickers and a union hat and confiscated pro-union fliers from a break room in Charlotte, N.C..
Cintas has been told to remove from files any references to disciplinary action for wearing pro-union material, to stop interfering with employee rights, and to post explanations of the NLRB decision at its Charlotte and Branford, Conn., facilities.
Way to go! Every time I see one of their trucks go by I get the chills some companies are just plain heartless. I will never get Eleazar Torres-Gomez out of my head if the incident itself wasn't bad enough it was his son discussing the treatment of the family that really got my goat.
