Support Striking Workers in Lexington

Get out there and tell the workers you support them.  At least honk as you drive by.  Write letters to the editor supporting the workers. Tell everybody you know to do the same.
Members of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace workers union who are employed by Allsource Global Management, a subcontractor to Lockheed Martin at Bluegrass Station Army Depot in Lexington, voted to strike Tuesday night.

Bob Wood, spokesman for the union, which has 170 members at AGM, said the workers voted 98 percent to strike over a breakdown in bargaining over cuts in pay of 35 percent to 50 percent. The strike was to begin at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday.

AGM provides supplies for U.S. Army Special Forces units, Wood said.
Employers all over the country are fucking their workers in the ass with giant, spiked, poisoned dildos of low pay, no benefits, high stress and layoff threats.

Keeping unemployment high just ensures workers tolerate such abuse.

IAMA members aren't taking it.  They're fighting back. Help them.

Thank you for your support! We are still out here on the picket lines at Bluegrass Station (Lexington, KY) and Bluegrass Army Depot (Richmond, KY) fighting every day against these unfair labor practices.
