Unions vs City Managers

Thank God it hasn't come to this here in Lowell.  From the Miami Herald we have this article, "North Miami Beach employees in hot water over alleged Santeria birdseed plot".  Santeria is a syncretic religion of West African and Caribbean origin.  Apparently, religious mystical powers were involved.
Two North Miami Beach employees — one a police officer, the other a department office manager — are in hot water after trying to enlist some supernatural aid in the form of what they believed to be a Santeria practice.

Their alleged target: City Manager Lyndon Bonner, whose plan to slash the police budget prompted protests and union outrage this fall.
I wonder if this violates the First Amendment?
