Strike Update Day 182 – (8/19/2008)

Day 182 – I am sure you are all waiting to see what is going on. The latest news is that the striking members are preparing to return to work on Thursday as the injunction had ruled. However Helen has decided to appeal the injunction (surprise-surprise) to the presiding judge, the judge immediately threw out the appeal according to a union representative. Helen can still appeal to the second supreme court and they can decide to hear the appeal or not.


I had thought right from the start that Helen would appeal, but was surprised when I heard as of last night she did not. The other news is that Helen has now named 6 – 9 striking workers that she claims violated proper striking behavior and does not want these individuals to return to work. These people will not be allowed to return to work until each of them have hearings and Helen brings her proof to the court that they behaved badly.


These hearings were scheduled for yesterday but of course they were postponed, this is not a bad thing as it gives the individuals named in the cases time to prepare.


We shall see what happens by Thursday, if Helen can get an appeal I guess the striking members will still be outside on the picket line. If not then I guess Helen will have company inside once again and the scabs can finally go home, I wonder if Helen is going to keep all her security guards?


If there is anything news worthy it will be posted here promptly, until then we are all just waiting and watching this cat and mouse game.


In solidarity, STAND STRONG!
