The Local 581 ODE leadership team would like to challenge you and other Capital Mall workers to come out Wednsday July 8th in your purple to: 1) get a bargaining update, 2) share a little dessert, 3) and then toss about 200 purple SEIU frisbee's around. We are wanting to continue to build support and unity around our struggle for a fair contract. With any luck we might even have a weekly lunchtime unity action every wednsday out in front of the govenor's office until our members get a fair contract.
The event we are proposing would be July 8th on the capital mall out in front of the State Library. ODE will take care of the bargaining update and will bring two hundred Frisbees. We would like you to get the word out that July 8th is a Unity Break Lunch with a Frisbee Free-for-all. We would like to ask if Mall worksites or Mall Locals would be willing to bring a few desserts (simple stuff). We would like help in sending the Govenor the following message: We are still here, united, and are williing to do our part to get a fair contract!
