CTU President, Protesters Push Back Against 'Unjust' Whole Foods Firing

Dozens of demonstrators picketed a Whole Foods Market in Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood Wednesday and demanded that store management reinstate an employee they say was unjustly terminated last week. Rhiannon Broschat said she was fired last week after calling off work due to the inclement weather. Broschat, a single mother, was unable to find someone to care for her special needs son Alexander last Tuesday when the Chicago Public Schools cancelled classes. On Wednesday, Broschat received a termination notice for violating the company's attendance policy.

“I called to let them know my struggle,” Broschat said. “To my surprise, they called me back the next day to tell me I was terminated. This left me with questions because we had a new revised attendance policy that stated inclement weather would be an excused absense.”
