Dear Centre City Tower tenants,
We would like to thank you. All your support, from the kind words to hugs to cups of hot chocolate, means the world to us. It would be impossible to get through these tough times without you.
Today we are stopping the Unfair Labor Practices rotating picket. We will continue to fight for our livelihoods and families with more pickets and rallies in the coming weeks and months. We will also continue our labor board and federal law suits against Independence Management for their illegal actions.
It's very hard to make it through the winter when you've suddenly been locked-out of the job you've had for years. Your support gives us the strength to get through this and never give up until there is justice.
