The Point: Solidarity


Greetings, Colleagues: 

Since I believe that a picture really can be worth a thousand words, I am going to keep this week’s Point very brief and mainly want to say: see below.  What you are seeing is members of all the campus unions, joined together in solidarity, trying to deliver a simple message to the chancellor: fair bargaining now. 

Of course all these union members were initially blocked from the main stairwells and elevators by the campus safety officers, presumably acting on the orders of upper administration. 

Solidarity means many profound things, one of which is knowing how to find the back way up and all going up together!

This is your union! Let us know at how you think we should continue to keep pressure on the upper administration to bargain fairly with the FSU and all campus unions.
