Casavant had no jurisdiction over the state-run pool handled by the Department of Conservation and Recreation, according to the ruling.

So, subtard, being part of a union really means that if you are fired unjustly, there are people who have your back and will work to get you your job back.

If you're not part of a union, then the supervisor who really was responsible can fire you as a scapegoat and you are eternally screwed.

Don't get me wrong, this whole thing was horrible. Obviously, someone wasn't doing their job, but it does look like this guy was wrongfully terminated.

Read carefully. He thought he was responsible and actually performed an inspection while a dead body was in the pool but somehow that minor detail escaped his inspection. Skills somewhere in the "Springfield Cop" level.
