A Fort Morgan meatpacking plant and the employee union that represented its workers violated Muslim workers' civil rights in a dispute over prayer breaks, a federal agency that enforces U.S. anti-discrimination laws in the workplace has determined.
 
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission invited Cargill Meatpacking Solutions and Teamsters Local No. 455 to participate in mediation to resolve the discrimination complaint, according to a copy of an Aug. 3 letter signed by Elizabeth Cadle, district director of the EEOC's Denver office. A resolution could involve paying the workers lost wages, restoring their benefits, returning them to their jobs, and awarding the workers money to punish the company and the union.
 
The EEOC ruled in favor of 130 employees who filed complaints against Cargill and in favor of 20 workers who filed complaints against the Teamsters, said Qusair Mohamedbhai, who represented the Somali workers.
 
The EEOC determined there was "reasonable cause" that Cargill had discriminated against the workers because they were black, immigrated from Somalia and practiced Islam...
 

 

CAIRCO Notes

If a Christian activist organization demanded that Cargill close on Sundays, or if a Jewish political organization demanded Kosher food in the cafeteria, it is unimaginable that federal agencies would demand that Cargill comply. Yet the demands of Political Islam are met with submission. 
 
Creeping sharia is the gradual encroachment and implementation of Sharia in non-Muslim lands (Dar al-Harb or House of War). Often implemented willingly by non-Muslims (infidels) - that is: willing or voluntary dhimmi. For example: prayer rooms in workplaces; halal food in public school cafeterias.
