Meetings begin between East Africans, community leaders
by Chris Casey
A group of East African residents has begun monthly meetings with Greeley leaders following last month's dispute about prayer breaks at JBS Swift & Co., and subsequent firing of about 120 Muslim workers.
Five members of the East African Community Council met with social service representatives, Realizing Our Community and Greeley Mayor Ed Clark earlier this week. The next meeting is planned for Nov. 3 at the Greeley Recreation Center.
Members of the East African Council, some of whom tried to mediate the dispute between JBS Swift and the Muslim workers, on Monday gathered information about local education, social service and employment options for the local East African community.
