    this happens more often at many other terminals, i resigned because i observed this kind of stuff rather than gather evidence against the company, maybe the people still working there can voice their opinions about what they observe

    if i wasn't helping the black coworker i would have never been called that, so it was racially motivated

    Document document document!!! Did they file a grievance? Was it ignored? Or did they go straight to a lawyer for a payday? If this actually occurred it's abhorrent, but I was surprised there was no mention of any involvement of the union in all this...
