Company sent worker packing for trying to exercise his right not to join the Teamster union guaranteed by Indiana's popular Right to Work law
Indianapolis, IN (March 2, 2015) – A former seasonal Indianapolis-area UPS (NYSE: UPS) worker has settled with the company after filing unfair labor practice charges against UPS with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).
Avon resident Dale Thrasher filed the charges with free legal assistance from National Right to Work Foundation staff attorneys after UPS refused to hire him in retaliation for declining to join the Teamsters union during the company's orientation.
Thrasher has been a seasonal employee for UPS for the past several years. In November 2014, while attending a UPS driver orientation, company officials told all potential employees that they were required to join the union as a condition of employment.
