Help a Striker
A neighbor of mine is a striking local 6,500 member. I saw him outside the other day and I asked him how things are going. He confided in me that being forced by Vale to strike was taking a toll on him financially and he was starting to worry about his ability to put food on the table if it went on much longer. The conversation bothered me for a few days and I decided I needed to help him. Later that day, I gave him money for groceries and told him to pay it forward once the strike is over.
My question for you all is what are you going to do to support our strikers? They are fighting for the greater good of the community. If you haven’t done anything yet, do so. We’re all in this together as Sudburians.
Although I was never a union member, I had a long career and the life experiences to know who is one the right side of this fight.
