Just to let everybody know our story has gone nationwide. We are on the AFL-CIO site, DailyKoz, and the story came as a google alert to my phone today. It has also been on the IBEW National website.
The story of MCC Newburgh bringing in IBEW Local 363 and how we used the blog was carried on over 150 radio stations across the country on January 5th through laborradio.org.
It will be carried on another 300 affiliates across the country from a Pittsburgh radio station that wants to speak with IBEW Local 363 sometime this week.
The SEIU in California, Teamsters in St. Louis, Florida, Newark and IBEW in Michigan have contacted us for info and to lend support.
We have plenty of support now and it's growing everyday. YOU MAY NOT REALIZE IT YET BUT........
.....You the workers at MCC Newburgh are an inspiration to many, many other American workers - and it's only going to get bigger.
Stay solid, stay strong and lets work hard on getting a fair first contract and begin to help management make this plant the best there is.
Welcome to all workers across the country who have discovered us, support us and who will hopefully, some day be us!
This is the time - with the world economy turned upside down - for the American workers to stand together because the fact is no one will do it for US and no one else cares.
