No one else really was hit. The Fairhaven CSSC wasn't hit at all. We're still going to have about 200 people after Nov. 19th.

We did have a rally on Wednesday which went very well. I want to thank everyone who attended, and took the time to come out. Jobs with Justice, Street Heat, Congressman Barney Frank came down, and the Teamsters joined in.

I would like to thank everyone for the support. We have to keep the fight going and keep the center open. We have to send a message to the company to stop the outsourcing!

That's all I have for now, please visit the webpage, as I get more information I'll update the webpage.

Thanks for calling Local 1051, have a great day.
