Members of a Muslim advocacy group said they will be filing discrimination claims against the JBS Swift Meat Packing Plant in Grand Island. It all stems from a prayer dispute between Somali Muslim workers and the company last month.
Chicago based representatives from the Muslim Advocacy Group were in Grand Island Tuesday and earlier Wednesday morning.
The group met with Somali residents to address the prayer dispute that left many Muslim workers jobless after they walked off the job repeatedly in protest.
Representatives from the American–Islamic Relations said they plan to file more than 20 discrimination claims against the company.
