[United Food and Commercial Workers staff employee Agnes Sobczyk] said she passed a letter to a co-worker detailing her concerns about State Rep. John Fritchey, the candidate the union has endorsed to replace [Rahm] Emanuel.
She passed the letter to her co-worker on Wednesday night and on Thursday morning, she said Union President Ron Powell called her into his office.
“He shoved this in my face and said, ‘Explain this!'” she said. Sobczyk said she told Powell she was concerned about some stories she read about Fritchey and that she thought [Victor] Forys was a better candidate.
“Then I just stopped talking and said, ‘I’m fired, right?'” she said. “He said, ‘Yes you’re fired.’ I couldn’t believe it. I got nothing but good reviews there.”
