Things you can do whether you're on "the Better Way Bus" or not...!
Bob Sexton, Director, Region 14 (Jackson & Josephine Counties), SEIU #503, 18.05.2011 23:17
Hello, fellow Southern Oregon SEIU/Labor/Social Justice activist!
If you're like me, you may be very frustrated that - much as you'd like to - you won't be able to attend SEIU's "Better Way Rally" in Salem this Friday. (Or maybe you ARE going? If so, please share this info anyway!) I'm MIGHTY glad to hear that SEIU is fielding TWO busses from the Southern Oregon area, but unfortunately, I won't be on them. However, I'm NOT going to let this opportunity pass me by without doing SOMETHING! I hope you'll spread this message to other coworkers, labor activists, and Oregon citizens who rely on the continuation of our services...
