Looking ahead, I know we still have a hell of a fight. Workplace action is the last line of defense for public health and safety in a society dictate by the wants and whims is those who depend on labor for profit and power.
We need to be our own heroes. As a union, we need to use our power to be heroes for our colleagues, our students, and their families. “Hero” and “quietly followed orders” aren’t usually seen in the same sentence. Everything good in this world, every right, every protection we have is because of people who got louder when they were told to sit down and shut up.
