Striking Memories

Fred Klonsky muses on Duncan’s ridiculous comment and remembers the historic CTU strike – 6 years ago! His post is here: https://wp.me/p4C3g-oiP

I’ve been treated to my own memories of the CTU strike in my Facebook memories feed, and what strikes me is how passionately we believed in our fight, not just for ourselves but for our kids.

So, to the striking hotel workers in Chicago and the potentially striking teachers in L.A., I send you solidarity. As a former CTU member, I still feel a kinship with my fellow brothers and sisters.
