A worker in El Paso was vindicated after he was fired for talking to his co-workers about work conditions.  The employer’s action in firing the worker violates the National Labor Relations Act.  Taking action against a worker for discussing "terms and conditions" of employment with co-workers violates the NLRA.  Eric Murillo worked for Chaffhaye, Inc. and arranged a meeting with other employees to discuss unsafe working conditions.  His employer fired him.

After filing a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board and seeking representation from the Paso del Norte Civil Rights Project, he was reinstated with lost wages.  OSHA also eventually got involved and also found violations.  See report.  Chaffhaye produces livestock and forage feed.
