KENNEWICK, Wash.—About thirty supporters of the Ruby Ridge Dairy workers help a Peace Rally outside of the Grace United Reformed Church where the owners attend service.
More than a year ago the workers sued for damages for losing their jobs. They say they were wrongly fired for trying to form a Union. But the Ruby Ridge Dairy owners disagree. When we first spoke with them they told KNDU they have documentation of poor performance by the workers including endangering other employees. But Sunday the focus of the supporters was to get Pastor Craig Davis involved.
"So they may not give me my job back but maybe some things will be able to change and especially for my coworkers. And we hope that the attitudes of the owners will change. We hope that an agreement is reached," Jesus Perez, Worked for Dairy.
KNDU also spoke with Pastor Craig Davis, the Pastor of Grace United Reformed Church. He says he doesn't know why the church is involved or what the workers want from him. He says right now this is an issue with the courts.
