APNewsBreak: Air worker fired over dog offered jobAPNewsBreak: Airport baggage firm in dog fiasco offers fired Reno worker job back, back pay
RENO, Nevada (AP) ' The president of the baggage firm that fired a Reno airport worker in a dispute over the transport of an unhealthy dog says it is offering the woman her job back, with back pay.
Airport Terminal Services President Sally Leible told The Associated Press on Tuesday that she regrets the way the incident was handled. In a telephone interview from the company's St. Louis headquarters, Leible says she hopes Lynn Jones will return to the job she held for the last five years at Reno-Tahoe International Airport.
Jones says she was fired about three weeks ago when she refused her supervisor's orders to put the emaciated hunting dog on a plane bound for Corpus Christi, Texas.
Animal welfare workers picked up the animal. It recovered and was eventually returned to its owner.
