Tape Release Wednesday, November 27th, 2013
I want to update information on the 50/50 raffle for our Union Brother Mike Chomik that was put on the tape last Friday. Sam Polizzi who was the winner of the 50/50 called in and said that he wanted all his proceeds to go to the Chomik family. I presented Slawka Chomik with all the proceeds and want to let you know that she was overwhelmed by your generosity. The financial help couldn’t have come at a more important time for them. She wanted me to thank all of you and I want again to thank everyone for stepping up to help one of our own. Your act of generosity will not be forgotten by the Chomik’s.
This Black Friday, Labor Unions, activists, and community supporters will gather in front of Walmart at 3 locations in Rochester and others across the country for its widespread violations of workers rights. The NLRB is getting ready to make a decision to rule on these violations that include the illegal firings of more than 117 workers who went on strike last June. Please honor the picket lines.
The Locations are the following:
Walmart Supercenter at 2150 Chili Avenue
1902 Empire Blvd in Webster and
Supercenter in Henrietta, 1200 Marketplace Drive
The annual retiree Christmas luncheon is going to be held on next Friday at Rick’s Prime Rib at 898 Buffalo Rd beginning at Noon. If you haven’t called in to reserve your spot, you must do so by the end of the day on Monday.
I wish you all a Happy and Safe Thanksgiving. In your Thanksgiving gatherings, remind your family and friends what a Union has meant to you in regards to your pay, benefits, and fair treatment on the job and remind the naysayers who have ridden our coat tails, of the benefits that they receive wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for organized labor.
This is your President John Pusloskie thanking you for calling your Union tape the place where we fight for the respect you deserve.
