Day 141 – Today started out much more subdued than yesterday. The striking members were just doing their usual daily routine. The weather is hot again and there are many children on the strike line so once again the fire hydrant is open with a spray cap. I just want to state for the record that the NYFD and NYPD both are aware of the hydrant being open and the striking members have full permission to use it at will as long as the cap stays in place.
There is another article in the Riverdale Press today about the nursing home and how Helen now faces eviction, the article implies that she could seek another appeal but it is my understanding that once the Appellate Judges ruled on the case, that was it. Like I said before only time will tell.

It is rumored that Helen hasn’t been here for the last several days and also that people inside are packing things up, I guess maybe they are preparing for their own departure? If all plays out the way it is spelled out then Helen will leave via eviction and a receiver will step in and take over the day to day operations. There has been a buzz that there are three known receivers waiting to take over, one of them is Helen’s own Brother. All three that are waiting have agreed to sign the contract and put the workers back in their jobs.
We shall she what the outcome is soon enough, I am sure that everyone agrees we all just want this strike to be over and that a fair contract is signed and life for everyone can go back to some type of normalcy.
Tonight there was some type of issue where the police were called because eggs were thrown and some of the scabs were involved. I do not know the exact details as I was not there to witness it but I did receive the information when I arrived home. No arrests were made so once again I assume it was just the scabs and the striking members acting out. Remember these striking members have been outside for 141 days, eventually even the most timid of person would get frustrated.
Till Tomorrow, STAND STRONG!
