One of our rank and file SAG members and heroes of our recent strike showed solidarity with the UFCW today by joining their picket line! And from all reports they were very appreciative! While expressing their gratitude, they invited more SAG members to join them.
As any SAG member who was on the picket lines during our recent six month ordeal remembers, any show of support is a real shot in the arm. You can help by not crossing their picket lines. You can help by grabbing a picket sign and joining them for an hour or so. And you can help by getting the word out to friends and fellow members by reminding them that we are all union members–and we all realize the importance of standing together in union brotherhood.
Just so you know, members of the UFCW showed support for us during the strike of 2000 by bringing us food! So now is the time for us to reciprocate by showing support for them.
Your Editor and Chief is making up his own Picket Sign and will show his support by joining them on Monday!
Oh, by the way to our first SAG member to get out there on behalf of the rest of us, all we can say here at ECM is “Thanks, you are a real Peach!”
