Strike Update Day 41 – (3/31/2008)

Day 41 – A rainy day on the strike line is never any fun but to make matters worse the striking members were bombarded once again with eggs coming from the Cannon Heights building. Why are they doing this? They were caught on video yesterday and still persist today. Why are you taking your frustrations […]

Strike Update Day 40 – (3/30/2008)

Day 40 – Forty days and Forty nights and still standing strong! It is a shame that this strike has to continue on but without any negotiation taking place it looks like it will continue on for the foreseeable future.     Today the picket line was joined by several community members and one younger […]

Strike Update Day 39 – (3/29/2008)

Day 39 – First up today is an alleged altercation between a union member and one of the nursing homes hired security guards. The story is that one of the striking members objected to the security guard ushering replacement workers through the court yard of a building down the block. I assume the reason they […]

Strike Update Day 38 – (3/28/2008)

Day 38 – This sign was hung on the back of the 1199 RV today. It says it all, 38 days and still going strong!     It was reported today that the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service (FMCS) sent out a request to the union and the management of the nursing home for dates […]

Strike Update Day 37 – (3/27/2008)

Day 37 – I can’t believe we are at day 37 and I am still here writing about this. Why is this unfair strike allowed to continue on? Can’t anyone intervene and force some mediation? This strike needs to end and a fair contract needs to be signed. Helen, why is it so hard for […]

Strike Update Day 36 – (3/26/2008)

Day 36 – Today was a beautiful day weather wise. The sun was shining and it was close to 60 degrees. I am so happy the weather is changing as it will make standing on the strike line less stressful.   The security guard from yesterday is still video taping the union members even though […]

Strike Update Day 35 – (3/25/2008)

Day 35 – I can’t believe it is day 35 and Helen has not even offered any kind of negotiation. What is wrong with you Helen, these people have worked with you for all these years, some have worked in the nursing home even before you were the owner. Oh how I wish Mr. & […]

Strike Update Day 34 - (3/24/2008)

Strike Update Day 34 – (3/24/2008)

Day 34 – Still standing strong!   The day started out with me finding out that someone tried to steal the plastic Easter eggs in front of my house. Who did I find this out from? Not the police that are sitting outside but one of the striking workers. They saw some guy take all […]
