A veteran flight attendant at Southwest Airlines says she was fired from her job after speaking out about her faith and criticizing her union.
Charlene Carter of Aurora, Colo., filed suit against the company and union in a Texas federal court. She said her employment was terminated after she expressed her religious beliefs regarding abortion in Facebook posts and messages to union president Audrey Stone.
**snip** and activity in opposition to Local 556." Carter criticized the union for using employee dues to fly two dozen officials and flight attendants to attend January's Women's March protest.

The company fired her in March, citing her pro-life posts as "highly offensive in nature" and her messages to Stone as "harassing and inappropriate" and warned that her activism was in potential violation of its discrimination policy. Carter's suit says she is the only victim of discrimination in the case, pointing to several union members who were never punished or reinstated following death threats on social media.
Guess her masters “feel” she should’ve kneeled.
Another example of collectivist-corporatist tyranny.
“COMMERCE BETWEEN MASTER AND SLAVE IS _______”?
The union is supposed to protect people’s jobs. Now the union tells the company who to fire. Down hill we go!
I had a professor in college who sued his union for using dues to find political activities. He wasn’t a good instructor but he took his case to SCOTUS and won. For that he has my undying respect.
One other thing, only the weelthy and retired should post opinions on social media.
I lobbied for a flight attendant’s union in the 1990s.
The union COMPLETELY supported democrats.
I was one of two, I believe, Conservatives in the entire group of flight attendants who went to lobby on behalf of the union.
I remember a male flight attendant making jokes of sending tons of ice cream to Newt Gingrich (his weakness, apparently) so he would die from heart disease.
Against abortion? Who does she think she is, a protected muslim???
“Southwest has subjected approximately thirteen supporters of the recall effort to termination of employment, suspension, repeated fact-findings, and/or other disciplinary measures in the last twelve months, many times at the request of Local 556 members and officials,” the suit says.
The union is designed to build a large bureaucratic web that pays corrupt union leaders big salaries. They have never protected jobs
Nah even that is Ill advised
