Fired Swift workers continue meeting with union reps
by Chris Casey
Two things concerning about 120 workers fired Wednesday by JBS Swift & Co. -- unemployment benefits and potential JBS Swift action to address their grievances -- were static Monday as discussions continued between Muslim leaders and union representatives.
Kaise Egal, a leader of the Muslim workers, said Monday a few of the fired workers have left the state seeking work elsewhere, but most remain in Greeley.
Over the weekend, more than 100 of the terminated workers met in Greeley with an attorney for the United Food and Commercial Workers Local 7. He told them that in preparation for legal action, they need to document how and when they were fired.
