Tyson Foods update...

I received a reply from Tyson Foods regarding the Labor Day issue...

"Contrary to recent reports, Labor Day has not been done away with at
the Tyson plant in Shelbyville, TN. Recent RWDSU(Retail, Wholesale &
Department Store Union) contract negotiations resulted in a different
holiday for workers covered by the contract, for which the union
bargained. Employees not covered by the contract will still have Labor
Day as a paid holiday. The union asked for and received eid al-fitr in
place of Labor Day as a paid holiday. Employees receive eight paid
holidays per year, which is the same number provided in the old
contract. The contract does not provide for an additional holiday."

As far as I'm concerned, it's still guilt by association. You might want to voice your displeasure to the RWDSU as well, as will I...
