Where Sexton Goes, GSOC Will Follow
From the GSOC office to Nerds' inbox to you (dated Fri., Jan. 20th):
This morning in upstate Poughkeepsie, NY, John Sexton spoke at a breakfast honoring Martin Luther King, Jr. Faculty from Vassar College, union members from AFSCME and 1199 and a UAW contingent leafleted the event. Most attendees were friendly and supportive and many said they would call Sexton after reading the flyer, which quoted King directly on justice for workers. King was assassinated in Memphis where he was scheduled to lead a march of sanitation workers on strike for recognition.For more on Sexton's take on the teachings of MLK, and how he (puzzlingly) applies them to the strike at NYU, see this post [reference].
Last night in Bal Harbour, FL, Sexton attended an NYU alumni event at a private residence. Members of UNITE-HERE leafleted the event in support of our strike.
Meanwhile, at the Hilton in midtown, GSOC members leafleted the New York City Real Estate Board black-tie banquet, attended by NYU Board members Larry Silverstein, Leonard Boxer and William C. Rudin.
