maladies, movies, meetings, & misplaced stuff

The flu has arrived:  If the viruses have got you down, and you’re unable to do 20 hours of picket duty, you need to submit a note from your doctor to that effect in order to receive strike pay for the time you were sick.  Phone Strike HQ, 604-872-2647, for more information.

Thursday there will be an Early Morning Matinee (at 7:30 am!) of the sure-to-be-award-winning CUPE 391 videos, on the Hamilton Street side of the central library.

Also on Thursday, the weekly Job Action Committee meeting takes place from 9-11 at the Union Office. Everyone is welcome.  Meet fascinating people with interesting things to say, and there might be food, too. Meeting time=picket time.

Thank you to the eight people who went up the mountain to show our support at the rally for striking SFU childcare workers.  It was greatly appreciated.
