The United Steelworkers Local 9265 called this morning to invite the Guild to speak at their annual conference.
One chapter of United University Professions donated $250 to the Guild. Another has signed up more than 20 people to be associate members of our union as a show of solidarity.
Sickened by the Company’s treatment of us, the New York State Nurses Association staff canceled their subscriptions. Other unions have called to say they are willing to circulate boycott cards or do whatever we ask.
The Albany Common Council passed a resolution in our support, and the Albany County Legislature sent letters to Publisher George Hearst. A slew of other local government bodies are considering similar resolutions.
Every day, the calls, letters and e-mails increase. The support is tremendous, and we are very grateful for every bit of it.
