Toyota Workers Complain Over Anti-Union Policies
BUFFALO, W.Va. (AP) — Workers at the Toyota Motor Corp. (NYSE:TM) plant in Buffalo have filed a grievance with the National Labor Relations Board, saying they're being denied the right to pass out union literature.
The complaint was filed Friday at the federal agency's regional office in Cincinnati.
Toyota employees Tim Smith and Richard Snyder say they were denied permission to distribute union literature during break periods.
Mitch Weese, human resources director for the Buffalo plant, says the company has no immediate comment on the complaint.
But Weese says company policy does restrict the distribution of literature to non-work times and non-work areas.
The engine and transmission plant in Buffalo employs 1,050 people.
