After last week's report of the City bullying impending strikers from the Engineers and Architects union, we feared some good old-fashioned Haymarket-style labor violence. Alas, all seems pretty calm, as one of our readers writes in:
On my way into work this morning there were 30-40 EnA Union members protesting outsideSo there we have it, bored police, some honking, lack of raw effluent. Just another quiet day downtown.
the police station (HQ?)Piper Tech on Ramirez St. across from Patsouras Transit Plaza. There were also about 5 uniformed police officers that looked really bored with the assignment of keeping the station’s driveway clear of protesters. Everything was orderly, but there was lots of honking going on.
I checked my streets and busses weren’t wildly driving themselves after pedestrians or running with raw effluent, so I guess the force of the strike has yet to be felt…
