Hi folks. Long time no post. Real Life has been keeping me otherwise occupied. Still trying to write but unfortunately screwed up and completely blocked myself by refusing to start any new projects until I finished some of my unfinished ones. So, nothing new to post story wise.

However, I have a favour to ask. My union local has been asked to spread the word in support of CUPE Local 2974 who are approaching a lockout/strike deadline. They're having a rough go of it with an employer who doesn't think that the "negotiation" part of contract negotiations applies. That local (library employees) is doing a social media blitz on Monday to tell their employer (the Essex County Library Board) "Don't dictate, negotiate". I'm copying and pasting (below the cut) the letter that was sent out. Please share and participate if possible. Let's help demonstrate the power and reach of social media and hopefully embarrass the employer (and the county council pulling the strings and looking to set a precedent that doesn't bode well for any unions locally, provincially, nationally, or beyond) - maybe if they face worldwide scrutiny and criticism then they'll be willing to negotiate, not dictate.

Thanks!
