We started off the new year with some distressing news. When the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette sent us the regular payment reports it owes us, we expected to see lots of overtime.
However, we were beyond disappointed to see people pocketing raises, bonuses and promotions off crossing our picket line.
We’re talking quarterly bonuses of $1,500 for three employees that, combined with a further raise for one of them and four others, total around $40,000.
But we know we can match that – and quickly – without stooping to taking the Blocks’ union-busting money. That’s why we’re asking you to help us raise $40,000 for the strike solidarity fund by Feb. 1.
