Brothers and Sisters,
Today your union leaders met with FairPoint company representatives. The company refuses to compromise. We now have no choice but to strike.
As of 12:01 a.m. October 17th, we are on strike. If you are working tonight, and your shift extends past 12 o’clock, leave your workplace at midnight–not before.
Picketing at pre-determined work sites will begin tomorrow, October 17th.
Please plan to report to your assigned picket sites tomorrow. You will receive more details from your mobilizer, steward, or picket captain soon.
Your bargaining team needs the full support of every member at this critical time. Only together will we win this fight!
We are Union. We are proven. Hang tough!
