Subject:   Re: [september17discuss] URGENT! FIGHT DC37 LAYOFFS TUESDAY 10/11 @ 9:45AM!

Quick correction: DO NOT engage in disruptions or CD at the city council hearing tom., as it could hurt DC 37's ability to fight for the restoration of the jobs of laid off workers. All are welcome to support DC 37 in encouraging the city to do the right thing and give Local 372 school workers their jobs back! Sorry for any confusion.

For anyone that is available tomorrow morning before the Sotherby's
action, DC 37 could really use your support in fighting the city over
the layoffs of school workers from Local 372, at the City Council
Finance Committee hearing.. The hearing will begin at 10am at the
Emigrant Savings Bank building across from the Department of Education
(49-51 Chambers Street),  it is important that protesters gather
outside of the building from 9:30-9:45 to shame city council members
and Chancellor Dennis Walcott as they enter the building (there is
only one entrance/exit). Additionally, we need as many people as
possible to get inside the hearing to testify and voice public
disapproval for the continuation of budget cuts in a time of surplus
in the city. If anyone plans on engaging in CD or disruptions make
sure that you are not disrupting while folks give testimony against
the layoffs.

As you all already know, the layoffs of unionized school workers is
part of a larger plan announced by the mayor this week to cut an
additional $2 billion from city agencies, with health care and
education continuing to take the hardest hits. It is time for us to
stand up for the rights of workers, schools, and students and to
oppose the policies of this ruthless mayor and incompetent Chancellor.
Raising enough of a stink at this committee meeting in hearing may
provide a small window of opportunity to restore DC 37 workers to the
schools that they were unnecessarily and unfairly laid off from. It
would be great if we could OWSers to march up to the City Council
hearing and get loud. SHUT IT DOWN!
