First of all, thanks to all of the MCC IBEW members who came to the rally this past Thursday. There were almost 1000 people there. Nurses, truckers, iron workers, teachers, electricians, can makers, highway department workers, firefighters and many others were there to stand up for the rights of all Americans to bargain with their employer.
Thank you to THE WORLD FAMOUS PETE SEEGER for coming and singing "Which Side Are You On?" with us. Mr. Seeger is now 91 years old and truly an inspiration to everyone near him.
If you missed it you will get another chance in the beginning of April at another rally that should be much larger. Look here for details.
Bargaining for your contract continues next week. Like many of the posters already stated under the previous story - we want to make sure that we make our progress in the most prudent way - we are not rushing or holding back.
Negotiating is a marathon, not a sprint.
We believe that we will be making some decent progress this week. If you have any suggestions - please let your reps know.
Stay Strong, Stay Solid
