Under Armour: Don’t Let Your Trucking Carrier Fire a Mom of Three for Needing to Pee!

She peed, and they made her pay.

Toll Group’s unreasonable firing of Xiomara Perez, who made a quick stop at a McDonald’s to use a restroom while on the clock, has American workers everywhere shaking their head in disbelief. Urge Under Armour, who contracts with this Australian trucking carrier to haul its goods out of the Ports of LA and Long Beach, to stand up for Xiomara Perez and her union.

According to Toll Group, once on the road, drivers are not allowed to make a quick pit stop – no matter how many hours drivers are sitting in traffic. But as a professional driver, Xiomara adhered to U.S. Department of Transportation regulations that require any hauler to pull over if they feel faint, fatigued, or are experiencing any other physical ailment that may keep them from safely operating the truck.  

So why does the $8.8 billion company, a contractor for the popular U.S. athletic apparel brand Under Armour, find this quick pit stop unacceptable? The truth is that Xiomara is a vocal supporter of the union and better workplace safety, and management spied on her, and retaliated to send a message to her co-workers that all union supporters will be punished. 

Under Armour is one of Toll Group's largest customers that has a strong code of ethics and business conduct policy to respect freedom of association and workplace health and safety, so if Under Armour speaks up about firing a mom of three for going to the bathroom on the job, Toll Group will have to sit up and take notice.

Ask Under Armour to stand up for union rights and immediately reinstate Xiomara Perez!
