    quibble over 5%.

    Either way, it's an incredibly high % to vote to go out on strike.

    Sounds like UNITY to me.

    In the end strikes are won with

    SOLIDARITY
    &
    UNITY.

    Our safety action many years ago was opposed, both by our Local Union and by the Corporation (a huge international corporation.) All we had was each other and our unity. But we won that fight! My "indefinite suspension" eventually turned into a month of paid vacation, and when, the dust settled, the federal mediator said that she had never seen such good safety language in a any other union contract.

    When we fight, we might win, or we might lose. But if we never fight, we will, for sure, never win.

    WE NEVER FORGET Our Labor Martyrs: a project to honor the men, women and children who lost their lives in Freedom's Cause. For May: Martyrs of the San Diego Free Speech Fight, Spring 1912.
