DOVER, DE – Dover’s non-union city employees have abandoned their previous tactic for organizing and asked the Amalgamated Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees to be their certified bargaining agent with Dover’s city council.
DOVER, DE – The saga of mismanagement and desecration of the remains of fallen American service members at Dover Air Force Base’s mortuary continues. Randall Chase of the Associated Press writes about retaliation against the three employees who blew the whistle on mistreatment of the remains of service members lost in Afghanistan and Iraq.
While the U.S. Air Force claims to have fixed the problems, it should be noted that the Air Force, in its investigation of the matter, claims that the removal of a Marine’s arm because workers couldn’t get a uniform on him didn’t violate any rules. Perhaps the Department of Defense should re-examine the Air Force’s investigation and its rules concerning the handling of deceased service men and women.
