    Shocking.......you know why? Because they most likely have a vague, two sentence Corrective Action section in the staff personnel policies written by Starbucks management. The first thing you do is establish a grievance policy with steps and binding arbitration being the final decision. I don't know what state law is, but in California, discipline MUST, among other things, be equally applied and lawful.

    In other words, you have to treat all of your employees equally and you can't discriminate because of, among other things, political affiliation; which appears to be exactly what is going on here.

    It's very common in the workplace and I was threatened for termination because of my use of the phone for union work. HEERA, the law that governs public sector employees in California, allows for reasonable access to communications which has been ruled to include electronic communications. So, once we called in the guns, they backed off. Their union has the resources to handle things like this and it's also a really good learning opportunity for potential stewards who can handle cases like this.

    So Kellogg's used shady and probably illegal tactics to break the union? Doesn't surprise me.

    I would love to see these two write and cosponsor legislation together.

    Oh c'mon. They have profits to protect you know. What are they supposed to do? Allow sick employees to be paid because they're putting them in a hazardous workplace?
