lizyrd: opiumpoopy: I like the implication that after a year of service, the union would prevent such disciplinary action for cheating on safety exams.It's not that the union would "prevent" such action. It's just that new hires get no job protection whatsoever, by contract or from the union. Their probationary status allows them to be dismissed for any reason, and the union probably doesn't allow them to join until the probationary period is finished.The three that were moved back to their old jobs may well end up getting fired. It's just that they have contractual protections and are entitled to representation, so management has to go through a disciplinary process beyond "you're fired."
