A helping hand – sort of

Members of the Southern California Media Guild were walking a informational picket line again Saturday, drumming up more support for our effort to get a fair contract with MediaNews. We were at a Signal Hill car dealership, and a representative gave the union activists a commitment to send a message of concern to company officials.

That's standard, according to the picketing veterans. What was unusual, however, was another tidbit of advice.

The dealership representative — sounding somewhat like a labor strategist — strongly suggested that a neighboring dealership might also be a good strategic spot for picketing! We're taking the "generous" advice.
