pratt-rat-at-union-rally

Neighbor and MS reader M-J sent me this picture of the Pratt Rat at yesterday’s union rally.

For more, go to http://pratttherat.com/. In short, LIUNA Local 79 is trying to unionize the process of building 524 Myrtle.

I may have video footage later.

  1. Who’s the rat? Pratt’s the Rat!

    I would love to see the video, I was one of the chanters at the rally, it wasn’t just LIUNA, there were members of all of the Building Trades and we were greeted by a nice group of professors and other workers at Pratt who stood in solidarity with us. The people were with us too. I’m so glad you got a picture online, I was searching one out. The story is also on Workers Independent News nationally :http://www.laborradio.org/node/10999 Audio (starts at 1:54) http://www.laborradio.org/files/winhead042809.mp3 and will appear on 1010 Wins AM radio in a truncated form tomorrow.

    Nice work Myrtle Shuffle, send me an e-mail (link on my site) and I’ll make sure you get notified when we will be back en mass. Hit the Italian/Mexican restaurant that was across from the Spanish/Chinese joint LOL, They like blending things around CH, maybe next time I’ll hunt down a Polish/Thai restaurant.

  2. Thanks!
