Over Labor Day weekend The Walnut Street Theatre fired two union stagehands. The company discriminated against a stagehand employee with a disability when it fired him, according to the International Alliance of Stage Employees, (IATSE) Local 8. Further in the same weekend, the company retaliated against a second stagehand employee by discharging him after he called for his Weingarten Rights and asked for a union representative.
Retaliation and Discrimination is wrong.
