Voodoo Doughnuts Ordered To Rehire Workers Fired Over Heat-Related Strike

(Portland, OR) -- Voodoo Doughnuts is being ordered to rehire half a dozen workers who were fired after going on strike during the summer's historic heat wave in the Pacific Northwest. The National Labor Relations Board issued a ruling last week finding the seven employees were wrongfully terminated. The workers went on strike in June, saying the store's interior was over 90 degrees Fahrenheit. The iconic doughnut shop responded by firing the employees for refusing to work in the extreme heat. The shop is being ordered to rehire all seven workers and provide them with three months of backpay.
