More workers fired for Facebook postings


Facebook cases continue to pour in for National Labor Relations Board agents to investigate.

At the Frito-Lay distribution center on 18990 NE Riverside Parkway in Portland, a supervisor refused to let forklift operator Roy Rhone Jr. leave work when he complained of dehydration and dizziness. After Rhone spoke out about it on Facebook, management found out about it and fired him. Workers there belonged to Teamsters Local 305 until they voted to go non-union several years ago. But they still have a supposedly protected right under federal labor law to discuss their work conditions — in any forum they like.

Meanwhile, at Meadow Park Health & Specialty Care Center, SEIU Local 503 filed charges against a policy that it says unlawfully restricts employee use of social media.
