You might be asking yourself, “Who are the men in this picture?” They are USW Local 13-2001 members Ricky Brooks and Mark Schubert from Baytown, Texas and here are a few things we want you to know about them.
- They are hard-working union members with reputations for conducting themselves with dignity, respect and honesty.
- Both have dedicated their working careers to organizing, to making their refinery safer for their co-workers and their community, and to maintaining a decent standard of living for the next generation of workers.
- In mid-June, ExxonMobil fired them based on statements that were allegedly made in a new employee orientation.
We believe that their dismissal is without cause and need your help letting ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson know.
US readers can click on the image above to send an email directly to Rex Tillerson letting him know you disagree with the termination of Brooks and Schubert and demand they be reinstated.
