Hartford Wood River Terminal Oil Company and CEO Matt Schrimpf better increase their fire coverage and hope they never need the fire department.. Volunteer Firefighters put their life on the line each time an alarm goes off for only the satisfaction that they are helping their neighbor even if they have never met them.
This was absolutely wrong. Firefighters have one of the most difficult jobs and yet this is the treatment that they got. I hope he finds a new job where he will be valued. May God bless him and all the firefighters we have.http://takethisjoborshoveit.com/
NO NO NO NO NO THERE IS MORE TO THIS STORY THAN "POOR VOLINTEER LOST HIS DAY JOB!!! " PS volinteer is a paid one a poorly paid one...
Well, sounds like the company decided to make an example of this Volunteer Fireman; they wanted to make it clear that they were the "boss"!Whatever the "other reason" they claimed, it still sounds like a chickens**t way of doing so and why had they not fired him before ?Hopefully there is another Oil Company nearby that customers could switch to; Soon!
Thier is more to it then this-- they gace hin the option of a vacation dyd he sould have taken it. My guess is thier was some verbal altercation. I am a Firfighter too, and Volunteers are under some time constrnts some emplyers go with others do not. Most volunterrs drive thier own cars to the seen and can leave for other duties.
Justin Wilkinson & volunteers like hime are the Heartbeat of America.
There's another way he could fight it is call the states labor relations board..
I think it was wrong what they did too him,, i hope he gets hisw job back..
I think it would be better that he gets a higher paying job with a competitor and also win the lawsuit along with some additional punitive damages tacked on.
As usual, there's something else going on behind the scene which the article's writer didn't bother to find out.
Well, if the former employer is refusing to comment, there's not much more the author COULD have found out, is there?
Thank you, Karen, for stating the obvious to thosholzel!
If he was such a lousy employee, WHY didn't they fire him BEFORE this? What a jerk supervisor! Have him work the entire shift and then fire him the next day? But then most supervisors I have worked with have been total idiots. I had a boss tell me that there wasn't enough work for me to do and then told me I had to show her my morning duties so they could have someone else do them. I asked her why I would do that if there wasn't enough work. She was a dipstick.
Hello, Heidi Ann. Ever heard of something called The Last Straw?
