Republic broke federal law when it fired a worker because of his support for the union. The company also broke federal law when it stopped paying drivers for time they work while returning their trucks to the yard. McDonough is not the only group of Republic workers who are currently on strike. In Youngstown, Ohio, Teamster members who work at Republic's Carbon Limestone Landfill have been on strike since March 27. This morning the Youngstown workers extended picket lines to Republic facilities in five cities across Ohio.
