With the UPS negotiations dragging on, the public is certainly hungry for a fresh story. I've found one.

A week ago, Bently Nevada Corp., a major Nevada manufacturer, fired two non-union women for refusing to sign for UPS parcels. Federal charges of illegal termination have been filed. The National Labor Relations Board is dispatching an investigator.

I have seen no other story like this since the strike began---two people fired for their beliefs. The Teamsters-UPS fight wasn't their fight, but they made it their fight. They are paying one hell of a price.

If you want to read the Friday, August 15, news story I published regarding the UPS-Bently firings, you will find it at www.nevadalabor.com.

Should you need any of the documents filed thus far in the case, I've got them.

Let me know how I may be of further service. Be well. Raise hell. Andrew Barbano
