Day 53 & 54 – This post is a weekend wrap up. There is not much to report on this weekend, it was a very quiet weekend on the strike line. There was still a strong showing of solidarity by the union and the picket line was still manned 24 hours a day, but it seems like the weekend is a time for the striking members to relax and not push too hard. I think this is a good thing because everyone needs a little break from the daily routine, especially when your routine now consists of marching on a picket line 24 x 7.
The weather is turning nice so it won’t be such an annoyance to be outside on the line. I just wish this whole thing would be over and everyone can get back to their normal everyday lives.
Helen Sieger why are you carrying this on for so long? These are your workers, you have worked with some of these people for as long as you have owned this nursing home. It is not too late to sign the contract and do the right thing! Enough is enough already, these people need benefits, plain and simple. Why can’t you find it in your heart to just end this now? It would be such a great gift for you to sign the contract just before the Passover holiday. Don’ t you want to spend the holiday with “your family”? I would hope that you consider these workers like family, don’t you? These are the very same people that have worked hard so that you can reap the benefits of their hard work, now isn’t it time that you repay those benefits?
Stop this now, pay for health care benefits and let “your family” get back to work.
Till Tomorrow, STAND STRONG!
