I'm a little amazed no one else has posted about this incredible struggle.
A few numbers...

18,000 at today's rally. 90% of 30,000 members showed up to vote for a
strike with 97% in favor. Perhaps the most important single labor struggle
in the US in the last decade, if not all the way back to PATCO. Please
consider donating to the strike fund and attending/organizing a local
solidarity action.
