GTFF authorizes strike, Springfield rezones mobile home park

GTFF members authorize strike, with 95% of voters

GTFF announced last Friday that its members voted overwhelmingly to authorized its executive board to call for a strike. 1,044 members overall voted yes, which represents 95% of those that voted. Over 86% of its members participated in the vote.

The union held a rally Friday to announce the results of the vote. The event took place lunch time at Johnson Hall, right in front of Fall Street Faire on its last day, where many students frequent. Members of United Academics, SEIU, and undergrads were out in solidarity.

With no deal yet, GTFF is still on path to strike, likely November 4. The next action they are having is an info picket Thursday, starting off at 11:30 in front of Johnson Hall, picket areas TBA.
