PARSONS LOSES AGAIN and AGAIN and AGAIN
Well, once again Parsons Electric has lost it's appeal about our 15 minute paid breaks. This case has been going on for more than a year, and the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals has sided with IBEW.
The official ruling is listed below. The Court was made up of Federal Judges that were appointed by George Bush and Ronald Reagan, so they were not friendly to unions. But because our case was so strong, they could only side with us.
It is unfortunate that Parsons went to such great lengths to take from their employees to line their own pockets. The employees of Parsons not only want better, but they deserve better. The morale at Parsons is at an all time low and cases like this remind folks about how far they will go to take something away is not helping.
The NECA contractors could gain so much more if they have employees who enjoy working. An employee who is getting things stolen from him/her is not as productive as an employee who feels like they are an important piece of the puzzle.
Thank you to the brotherhood for standing up and fighting for what is right and standing tall in #SOLIDARITY.
Stand up and Fight BACK!
