Yes!! Friday 6 am is too early!!! But Liz Villareal and I will be at Roosevelt High School 3436 W Wilson Ave, Chicago, IL 60625 that early to help them set up their strike line and . . .
FOR THE FIRST PRESS CONFERENCE OF THE DAY FOR THE APRIL 1 UNITED DAY OF ACTION!!!
This will focus the day as not just about CTU but about public universities and human services and human life across the state!! And when I told the CTU delegate I would get some of us there–and, hey 2004 people, I told him we know how to set up a line–he got all emotional. (Remember what it’s like. Remember how vulnerable we felt even as we were energized. Why? Because people were there for us. It’s time to pay back.)
So, what’s it gonna be? 20 of us or 50? With me and Liz we’ve got 2. Come on 18 to 48? Commit.
(??? Scherman, Therese, Libretti, Weinberg, Mendoza, Milsky, Eleni, Nancy Matthews, Russell B, Russell Z? Who else??? New people!!! Yes, there has been great and active union life post-2004. Wake up and line up! Duggan, Linda Davis, Emily Garcia, Mary Thill and more?)
We’ve got to have a presence. We start off the day with this press conference and we are the story of the day.
Email and let me know who is going to commit. Reply here or use firstname.lastname@example.org
(And remember: you haven’t eaten a donut until you’ve eaten one on line (and I don’t mean when you’re checking your twitter account)).
