Muslim contract employees at the Dell Inc. plant in Nashville reached a settlement with the company on issues related to a dispute over prayer in the workplace, a national Islamic civil rights advocacy group announced yesterday in Washington.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations said the 31 Muslim employees, who left work last month in a disagreement over Islamic prayers, will be reinstated, receive back pay, and be granted religious accommodation. Managers also will also receive additional training on existing religious accommodation policies and practices. [emphasis added — D]
Negotiations included meetings for managers, classes where they will get
The settlement came following a meeting yesterday between representatives of the council, Dell [the Dhimmified], the Muslim workers, the Metro [Culturally Suppressed] Human Relations Commission and Spherion Corp., the company that provided the workers to Dell.
‘‘We are pleased with both the terms of the settlement and with the cooperative attitude of all parties in the negotiations,’’ CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad said. ‘‘We thank everyone from around the world who contacted Dell to express their support for reasonable religious accommodation in the workplace.’’
Poor Dell thinks this controversy is finished, a done deal ending the management/worker conflict. What they don’t know is that it never ends.
I wonder if they’ve dealt with the absolutely necessary Islamic plumbing for the long rituals leading up the numerous daily prayers. Have they considered what comes next? Will it be the rules for who is allowed to eat, and when? Do they have any idea what’s ahead?
See the train? That’s the CAIR Express, and it’s running on your track. Umm…have you noticed that all your freedoms are tied to the rails?
Most of the affected employees are from Somalia. Ah, yes, peaceful Somalia, that nation with liberty and justice for all, particularly women.
Abdirizak Hassan, executive director of the Somali Community Center of Nashville, said the workers walked out of the company’s Nashville plant last month because they were not allowed time for prayers.
So what will they walk out for next time? Toilets that face Mecca? Piglet on a poster? A woman’s ankle exposed where men might — gasp — see it?
There is no end in sight.
