We're ba-a-ack!

Nerds have been on vacation (er, catching up with all the work we didn't do in November and December while being on the picket line). We will be returning to our regularly scheduled updates.

In the mean time, here's what's happened during intermission:

Nerds have been seen leafleting Martin Lipton's law firm (Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen, & Katz) in Midtown Manhattan. Upon receiving our flyers, some of Lipton's dedicated employees were shocked to learn the truth about their union-busting boss. We also drew attention from a gaggle of Russian limo drivers and stopped traffic when a truck driver requested a flyer.

Nerds have also disrupted deliveries to the NYU bookstore and mounted an early-morning picket line in the hopes that unionized garbage collectors will not cross it. We've received lots of press coverage, such as this article from The Nation, and Christine Quinn (a long-time supporter) has become Speaker of the New York City Council. At the GSOC website, you can find audio and video press clips, as well as solidarity letters from other unions.

Regular picket shifts started up again this week with a strong showing on Tuesday. Come and visit Nerds on the picket line, as we've missed you. And save the date for a big labor rally on January 26th!


Finally, Donate to the GSOC Strike Fund

Thanks for the break update, B&R. Nerds have officially returned to the blogosphere. And we're still ON STRIKE!

I'm a little late to welcome you back, but welcome back.
