    of harrassment and retaliation from those who wish you harm individually and collectively.

    Gee, you would think there is a shakey democracy we have out there?

    What, no free speech at work?  thats the way it is.

    If there is an anti labor Administration like Bush era McConnell's wife Elaine Chao as a Labor secretary and the effort to dismantle labor rights already in law your chances of success in any conventional organizing campaign are going to be pretty small.

    Finding creative ways to communicate and outflank the professional anti worker organizing efforts (to keep people in fear and uncertainty) is a great step.

    empowering!   Here is a lesson:

    Starting a vanity blog and blurting out enough personal info that a savvy snoop can figure out whose blog and who is the person writing is never a good idea.

    think of the executive or the airline worker griping about conditions on the job and using enough traceable detail to lead back to herself. company fires her, even though it was her "own" blog and her "own" time....

        The organizers here took pains to make it safe and warned their people to stick to non personal details so as to make it harder to be picked off.

    Congratulations Newburgh!  That is a union town for sure, good for you

      used with care, and obviously moderated by the supporters,  no trolling there.

      Keeping people really informed using video, details truth from facts to help the people right there. on point.  nicely done, IBEW .

      Use the same old same old, get the same old results. Be attentive to the new and growing, get better results.
