San Jose Firefighters' Union Misconduct

Original post made by Joe, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on Apr 8, 2013

I understand the purpose of a union is to protect its employees, but please, this goes beyond the bounds of reason. It's written by a San Jose City Council member. Published in today's SJ Merc.

In the companies I own, all nonunion, if anyone says anything bad about another person in the workplace, we terminate the suspect on the spot. Grievance hearings and "workers rights" are too expensive in today's world. If someone is suspected, just fire 'em. That's what my Daddy taught me, and that's what I do.
