A mother finds herself out of work simply because she swallowed a piece of bread she left on a table in a law firm conference room.

She was fired from her overnight job in December around Christmas time for eating leftover tuna sandwiches that were destined for the trash. The story began to cause controversy in England.

The housekeeper, Gabriela Rodriguez, a 39-year-old single mother of Ecuadorian descent, was fired for eating leftovers from a meal left on a table in a boardroom at a law firm in London.

She had been working at Total Clean for two years when the attorneys complained to her employer about the incident. Neither one nor two were dismissed for gross misconduct, as reported by the British media RollOnFriday.

The union takes care of it

In the face of this blatant injustice, the United World Voices Union decided to take up the matter to help the now unemployed cleaner who claims that the mother’s status as a foreign worker played a role in the dismissal decision.

Law firm targeted by critics

In the face of the media outpouring resulting from this case, the London law firm, Devonshire Solicitor “He wanted to make it clear that he was not opposed to the cleaning lady returning to the building.”

But none of the lawyers sided with the woman when she was fired.

Two legal cases have been filed

The union will initiate two legal actions. The cleaning lady will sue the cleaning company for “unfair dismissal and racial discrimination.” As for the law firm, it is being sued for “racial discrimination.”
