AMARILLO -- 11 security officers at Pantex have been fired after calling in sick on the same day for the same shift.

Officials say the incident happened last week on the 21st.

The 11 officers including a union official called in sick within a few hours of their shift.

According to officials, the guards did it to avoid working on a drill that was scheduled to take place during the shift.

Officials say this was an unlawful job action and a violation of rules.
