ASHBURN, Va., Oct. 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- FCi Federal on Wednesday, October 14, issued five-day suspensions without pay to three United Electrical Workers (UE) shop stewards who invaded the office of the interim acting site manager at the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service's Nebraska Service Center in Lincoln, intimidating her and refusing her order to leave.
Ashburn, VA-based FCi Federal only a day earlier began its tenure as lead contractor operating the facility, which provides record-keeping and document-processing services for immigrants in the United States.
"FCi Federal has worked successfully with unionized workforces around the country," said Sharon D. Virts, Founder and Chief Executive of FCi Federal. "We expect to establish good working relations at the Nebraska Service Center as well, but we will not allow any employee to intimidate and threaten their colleagues or our customers. We are committed to providing a safe environment for all of our employees and take seriously any action that threatens workplace security. Simply put, such acts will not be tolerated."
