Workers at Tyson Foods’ poultry processing plant in Shelbyville will no longer have a paid day off on Labor Day, but will instead take the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr in the fall.
A recent press release from the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union (RWDSU) stated that a new contract at the Shelbyville facility “implements a new holiday to accommodate the … Muslim workers at the plant.”The RWDSU stated that “the five-year contract creates an additional paid holiday, Iidal Fitil, a Muslim holiday that occurs toward the end of Ramadan.” snip….
“The date for this holiday (Eid al-Fitr) is not the same each year,” Mickelson said. “however, it is in the early fall.”
The press release stated there are approximatly 700 Muslims working at Tyson, but Mickelson said that Somalis only represent approximately 250 of the 1,200 employed at the plant, a little over 20 percent of the workforce.
“All Team Members who have completed their probationary period are eligible for all eight paid holidays including Eid al-Fitr,” the Tyson spokeman said.The union also claimed that in addition to the observance of the Muslim holiday, “two prayer rooms have been created to allow Muslim workers to pray twice a day and return to work without leaving the plant.”Mickelson said that Shelbyville’s Tyson plant “does have a prayer room to accommodate the needs of Muslim Team Members.”
Look out Shelbyville, you could turn into the Twin Cities in Minnesota. The Somali’s have a very active legal advocate system and they use it to advance their extremist culture. Don’t expect the Somali’s to assimilate to American culture. They will use our laws to make money and then sue to advance their own Islamist ways.See these stories:
MAC tells Muslim cabbies – no exceptions. There are multiple links to this story included with this posting.
There are plenty more examples of Somali’s forcing their culture on the rest of us. There’s the Somali Target cashier who refused to touch a package of pork in Mpls. Target of course bowed to political correctness and established a policy allowing a Muslim cashier to call in a replacement. The creeping Dhimmitude in the Twin Cities is well established. With Tyson importing Somali’s to work in their plants in Shelbyville expect the Somali population to expand quickly.
UPDATE Monday August 4th: Michelle Malkin has a good roundup on this story and in the comments is provided a link that tells of Tyson’s different product names. Just in case you might want to stop buying Tyson products. There’s also some other interesting information regarding a deceptive advertising by Tyson.
