UniFirstbias termination of exemplarily employee

I am writing to complain about the treatment of a recently terminated delivery driver of your company in the Springfield office. I am complaining to corporate because it deeply concerns me that you allow certain "slackers" to be tolerated within your company, while other hand workers members of your company are fired because of petty, silly things, which if brought to the delivery person's attention, would have been handled in a calm, polite, and professional manner. This employee who was recently terminated has been with your company for the past 4 years, shows up ready to work, dressed in uniform
At 2:30 am. Does a 12 to 14 hour day Monday through Friday, and is terminated because of, a big Y employee who makes an invalid and dumb remark to the corporate office? This is just sad. Terminating a hard working employee is not the answer. If there are any questions about work ethic I would politely have you look into people like Christian Robak, Frank griffin, or Pat Mccue who are sliding by on doing less than the minimum, and are still employed. I implore you to take into consideration this hard working employee's  exemplary level of commitment to his job and his dismay at this recent termination. I am unaware of your company's warning system for grievances towards employees. As it stands, trivial complaint should be heard but dismissed immediately because of lack of substance and common sense,  and not result in immediate termination.

In closing, if an employee is not to be notified by the company they are servicing of any policy, they should be notified immediately by the management of said company in a professional manner.

This is not the case. This recent termination of this employee is said result. I am shocked to her this considering what has been said of this exemplary employee, and what they have been exposed to working for unfirst, that numerous complaints were not made to corporate concerning managements corse of action and own said responsibility.

In closing I hope there is another resolution other than the termination of this employee with unfirst. Other employees may require further analysis and observation. Especially those employees who are "comfortable" doing less than the minimum just because they have worked for the company 20 years.
