Be Fair to Those Who Care! @1199SEIU #99PKTS
On Wednesday, May 30th the Strand will be hosting a free, public event celebrating the store’s 85th anniversary. We will be crashing the party. The event begins at 5 PM. We plan to picket the store at 4:30 PM. We then plan to attend the soiree, partaking of the free cake & champagne. Before & during all of this, we will leaflet the sidewalk outside the store. Workers will be dressed in Union garb all day at work & at the event.
The workers of the Strand invite & beseech all who can to join us in fighting the greed of our own slice of the 1%. Our boss lives in Trump Tower; his daughter & co-owner is married to a US Senator. They ask us for wage freezes & givebacks while business is robust. We have mustered a strong resistance to their austerity; please help us move forward.
