Scab Crashes Tractor, 911 Called On Day 1 Of John Deere’s Replacement Of Striking Workers

Things aren’t going well for John Deere’s replacement of striking workers.

Jonah Furman of Labor Notes tweeted that John Deere “didn’t even make it til 8am without a 911 call” on Day 1 of using scabs.

Furman later tweeted a picture of the incident report.

It states that a “Tractor Operator was pulling an 8R into the 8R Repair Bay but didn’t account for the front weights, making contact with the utility post and crushing the 2-gang electrical box and scuffing paint of the front weights.”

Hmmm, maybe the company should pay union workers who know what they’re doing instead of trying to replace them.
