Swift Transportation Disabled Iraq Veteren Terminated While Performing Military Duties Phoenix Arizona
In feb 2004 I had a drill week end come up that I had to attend as well as 2 days of physical therapy and taking heavy meds which prohbited me from being able to work I notified my shift supervisor as well as the other 2 overlappig shift supervisors that I would be absent for those 4 days due to Physical therapy and military duties. They informed me that it was not a problem and to call in the day I was coming back to work to get my schedual. when I called in the Department Manager answered the phone and informed me that I was terminated for no call no show. The day of termination was the saturday I was on military duty.
Swift sent me a letter informing me that I could file for Unemployment but I took it a step further and notified the labor board through my chain of command. When Swift found out I went to the labor board they refused me Unemployment which went to court and the judge caught the On Road Department manager in several lies and found Swift Transportation in contempt for lying to the judge and I was awarded the Unemployment. Yet the case with the Labor Board never went to court because Swift Transportation refused to reture the phone calls to the labor board so the labor board dropped the case. I then went back to my chain of command and was informed that I was not the only person Swift Transportation did this to that they also did the same exact thing to another soldier in my same unit that worked for another department with Swift trasportation and he was fired for the exact same reason I was and on the exact same day and he was deployed to Irag the same time I was. So this tells me that Swift Transpotation fired us both because of our military service in Iraq and never suffered any conseguenses for thier action because they bought thier way out.
