Workers at Valley Ford Truck, members of IAM Local 1363, have been striking since mid-December with low strike pay. Our friends at North Shore AFL-CIO, who support our annual dinner and who we worked alongside to defeat August's Issue 1, are helping coordinate strike relief for the workers. In support and solidarity, and with Executive Board approval, Geauga Dems is collecting donations for the striking workers. Items can be dropped off at Headquarters this Sunday from 1:00-4:00 or you can reach out to me to make other arrangements. I hope to deliver the items early next week.
The most needed items are:
grocery gift cards
gas station gift cards
paper towels, toilet paper, other household items and toiletries
snacks for the picket line
There is a strike fund for monetary donations, but I do not yet have that information to share.
Thank you in advance for any support you are able to provide!
