My complaint email to Totes/Isotoner customer affairs
that any short email in each person's own words will help make an impression. I'll let you know what I hear back from them.
When I get the corporate address I plan to mail my favorite Isotoner
socks back to the CEO.
I have bought your products for as long as I can remember; gloves,
socks, slippers, umbrellas. I am sorry to tell you that I can no
longer buy your products now that I have learned about the Totes/
Isotoner firing of a breastfeeding employee. I know this happened
several years ago, but of course the news of the Ohio Supreme Court
decision has brought it to the attention of the blogosphere and
motherhood and anti-discrimination action groups. The discussion
boards I participate in have been absolutely on fire with outrage over
your action, and we are watching for your response.
Who do you think buys your products? I am sure it's women and mothers
buying for their whole families. You owe all of us an apology, you
owe LaNisa Allen a job, and you owe all your employees better
treatment. Wouldn't it be easier to make reasonable accommodations
for nursing mothers, rather than firing them? In addition to being
the right thing to do, of course!
Please send me the corporate contact information for your CEO, so that
I may register my concern directly and request a reply.
Signed, a former customer,
