Four sanitation workers were charged with working at a slow pace and failing to complete their routes.

A supervisor testified that he witnessed the workers' pace and ordered them to complete their routes. The Department also presented evidence that the sanitation workers' union asked specific districts not to clean their routes in protesting the suspension of another sanitation worker.


Administrative Law Judge Alessandra Zorgniotti found the four workers intentionally refused to complete their assigned routes and recommended three-day suspensions for each.
