An employee at the Daimler-Chrysler plant in Fenton has filed an unfair labor practice charge against the company with the National Labor Relations Board. Rossie Judd has also filed a disability complaint with the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs. Judd, who works the night shift, has asthma and claims the smoking of her co-workers has triggered attacks so severe that she has difficulty breathing and has had to go to the emergency room five times this year. Not only is Judd angry with the company, but with her union, which she claims wants to keep the smokers happy. Neither the union nor the company would comment directly on the case, but a Daimler-Chrysler officials says the company does allow smoking in open manufacturing areas because employees want it.
