    I just received this email from the musicians union. This picket is tomorrow, December 6th @6pm outside 1501 Broadway, Hard Rock Cafe at Times Sq. It could augment the #fastfoodfwd protest because it is in the same area and an hour later.

    Join with Cablevision technicians, and their union CWA outside the Hard Rock Cafe this Thursday, Dec 6th at 6pm as CEO James Dolan will be performing (yes, he thinks he is a guitar player!). Cablevision techs made history last January by beating back a viscous anti union campaign and forming a union. since that time, Dolan has refused to negotiate a contract.

    Local 802 knows what it’s like to negotiate with James Dolan at Radio City.

    Lets join with our brothers and sisters from CWA –one day they will return the favor! For more information, visit http://www.thecablevision99.org

    In Solidarity,

    I want to thank you for your important work and hope all your goals and dreams come true. Enclosed is a goal poem for inspiration and some song parodies I hope don’t happen to the services we want, need and rely on.

    Sincerely,
    Russell

    Best of Luck On Your Goals

    I am sure you will accomplish the many goals you set out to achieve.
    You are a determined smart and independent individual that is fair and compassionate.
    You are outgoing and get along well with others.
    Even though life throws us curves, you will stay on course and bring sunshine to others even when the rain clouds are storming.
    I wish you the best in all you do.

    Wreck Of The U.S. Postal Service

    Our Postal Service was founded in 1775 with Benjamin Franklin being our first Post Master.

    The Postal Service is in trouble because of a 2006- law that requires the Postal Service to pre-fund the cost of retiree’s benefits for the next 75 years in 10 years time.
    No other company or agency in America is required to do this.

    In June 2011 legislation was introduced which will be the Wisconsin of the Postal Service if it becomes law. It will dismantle collective bargaining and forbid payment of severance pay to retirement-eligible employees. And reduce delivery services and close plants and post offices.

    Another bill which would prevent the financial collapse of the USPS – without closing thousands of post offices, eliminating hundreds of mail processing facilities, delaying mail delivery, laying off 120,000 workers, cutting postal workers’ pay, or ending collective bargaining rights.

    We are in the fight of our lives but people have voted wrong for too long and done nothing to help preserve their jobs over the years. People tell me it doesn’t matter what we do as we are doomed anyway.

    Their mind is made up even before the studies are done.

    All we can do is say we went down trying to keep our Eagle from drowning to keep service for the American people and jobs and benefits for the workers.

    Many people will never give up until all services that help us including the Postal Service are bled and dead. Common sense is not in the makeup to improve the economy, only the rich get richer and the poor poorer.

    Private companies will not deliver to the rural areas or inner cities and the elderly will not get their medications.

    We will have a museum of our defunct Postal Service.

    The Carpenters We’ve Only Just Begun
    The Dismantling Has Begun

    The Dismantling has begun with service reduction layoffs, closures and legislation.

    Minds are made up before studies are even done with legislation ultraviolet as the sun.

    Sharin horizons with every one for themselves, as long as it doesn’t affect me.

    Talking it over with the few who care to say we went down trying.

    And when the election comes we hope the better candidate will be the one so the dismantling will be the slower one.

    The Dismantling Has Begun.

    Ladies and gentleman the Mail Carrier has arrived.

    Who can take a letter, who can take a package, Barcode and ID Tag it.
    Barcode and ID Tag it. Keep the country communication. The Postal Service.
    The Postal Service can, The Postal Service can because it Processes the worlds mail to bind the nation together.

    Who can Delivery Point Sequence, Process Packages, face and cancel letters, The Postal Service, The Postal Service can. The Postal Service can because it has all sorts of Process Mania techniques in the House of Processing and Dispatch.

    The Postal Service takes stamp collecting very serious; write about your pen pal wishes,
    Priority Mail can be your number 1 shipper.

    Who can take the voices, who can take the voices,
    Wonderful goals that they are, Incorporate them for the Politics of Processing.

    The Postal Service, The Postal Service can.

    The Postal Service can cause it was first led by our founding father Ben Franklin.

    The Postal Eagle keeps on soaring afraid of competitors wishes so we don’t get privatized and the Eagle does not drown.

    Who can take small towns, small towns, big cities, and big cities and connect them all together, The Postal Service,
    The Postal Service can because through rain, sleet and snow the mail must keep moving.
