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 that are available to get together for a mediation service. The union quickly responded with available dates and currently are awaiting a response from nursing home management. Let’s hope that this is a step in the right direction and this will get resolved quickly.

 

We have finalized the plans for the Candle Light Vigil on next Friday (April 4, 2008) and so far it looks like we will have a good showing of community support. These union members that have been our neighbors and friends for many years need our support. We cannot forget about them and let them just blend in with our daily routine, we still need to keep the pressure on everyone we can to get this strike resolved. Continue calling our elected officials and ask them what are they doing to resolve this strike, call the nursing home and ask for Helen Sieger and ask her what is her plan to resolve this strike. It is important to remember that these are hard working family people, just like you and me! They don’t want to be outside 24 hours a day on a picket line, but they have been thrown out there by one person that doesn’t think it is a right for them to have health care benefits.

 

Remember this strike is for benefits not wages…

To all the union members, the neighborhood supports you and we will rally with you whenever you need us. You can see all the support you have just by looking around, the signs are everywhere! There is not one sign saying “Helen we support you”, why? Because there are no Helen supporters! She is doing the wrong thing and she cannot expect support for that.

On last thing, this has nothing to do with the strike, but goes to show that Helen is NOT a good neighbor. This is the side of her building on Giles Place. Would a good neighbor and a friend to the community leave her property looking like this? This is only one neglected property that she has in our neighborhood, the other is just as bad if not worse.

Till tomorrow, STAND STRONG!

    Shame on you Helen Sieger.What a garbage dump. Just shows how much you really care about the place that has made you so much money! Why don’t you clean up all your messes? Get your act together!

    IT BOGGLES THE MIND THAT THIS SENSELESS STRIKE IS CONTINUING..HELEN DON’T YOU REALIZE WHAT YOU’RE DOING? THESE PEOPLE HAVE WORKED FOR YOU FOR YEARS,AND HAVE MADE YOU A LOT OF MONEY,THEY’RE LIKE FAMILY. I UNDERSTAND THAT THERE’S A LOT GOING ON, BUT DON’T BITE THE HAND THAT FEEDS YOU….GIVE THEM A FAIR CONTRACT AND HEALTH CARE BENEFITS THAT THEY DESERVE…END THIS SILLY CONTEST OF WILLS, AND PUT YOUR PEOPLE BACK TO WORK, WHERE THEY BELONG. THE SCABS WILL NEVER DO FOR YOU, WHAT THESE PEOPLE HAVE DONE FOR YEARS EVEN WITHOUT A CONTRACT. IT’S TIME TO NEGOTIATE…..TOO MANY PEOPLE ARE HURTING……..

    Jewish law includes within it a blueprint for a just and ethical society, where no one takes from another or harms another or takes advantage of another, but everyone gives to one another and helps one another and protects one another. Again, these are not merely high ideals; the means for fulfilling these ideals are spelled out in the 613 commandments.
