An appliance manufacturer said Friday that it has changed policies at its freezer plant in St. Cloud that will make it possible for its Muslim employees to observe Ramadan, but a Muslim civil liberties group is questioning whether the changes go far enough.
The North American division of the Sweden-based Electrolux Group announced that it had adjusted its meal schedule so that its Muslim employees will be able to break their fast at sundown during the annual observance.
It's unclear whether the changes resolve the issues raised by Muslim employees, according to the Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MN). Those employees have not yet had a chance to review the company's proposal, the group said Friday.
