Meeting Tonight, Strike Date Tomorrow

Your FA Bargaining Team has been working around the clock to achieve a tentative agreement.

Specific proposals traded between both sides have so far not been able to bridge the gap on several key issues.

The FA Bargaining Team continues to think outside the box and has presented some new alternatives in the hope of achieving a settlement before the strike deadline of 12:01 a.m. tomorrow, November 3.

You are invited to an 8:00 p.m. meeting tonight (Wednesday) at Strike Headquarters to hear up-to-the minute bargaining reports and information about picketing tomorrow in the event that tentative agreements are not reached with our local unions. Non-members and other people in the community who want to find out how to get involved are welcome. The Strike Headquarters is at 880 West High Street, in the west end of the old Carbondale High School, just off of Oakland Avenue, one block north of Main Street. There is parking in front of the building and a lot north of the building off of Oakland Avenue.

We are preparing for a strike in the event that no tentative agreement is reached by midnight, tonight. To be on strike is to not go to work. You don’t have to stand on the picket line to be on strike, but if you are willing to picket, come to the meeting tonight to get more information. If you are unable to come tonight and haven’t already been signed up in a picket squad, but want to come out to support picketing, you can check in Thursday near the main entrance to the campus on Highway 51 (Illinois Ave and Lincoln Dr) or talk to a picket leader at any picket location on the perimeter of campus.
