employee rights demonstration

We woke up this morning  to loud voices from across the river. We thought it might be something related to the Revolutionary Days events.

I just checked

It’s a revolution all right, a demonstration against two companies currently doing work for PEA.

EnviroVantage and SMS services.

It’s quite a raucous event and sure to embarrass PEA. That is the goal of direct action.

These firms hire low wage workers and do not provide health benefits. The work can be harmful such as asbestos removal.

The work is being done,it is not a stoppage. The Union organizer told me they are not trying to unionize the workers .

The action is against the two firms that have OSHA on their case, and the low wages.

2015-07-16 08.42.10The Exeter Police got this noisy (generator)  inflatable eyesore removed. Imagine the gall of these organizers.

A giant rat  right in the middle of Town!

This is our Revolutionary weekend for cripes sake!

You know the right to assemble was key without being threatened with arrest.

If you want to see the big rat get down there tomorrow morning at 630, the rat will be back.

Good for them.

  1. I only report the fun part, the high energy street action. The other part that might include day labor doing jobs without proper training and health benefits and receiving perhaps low pay, well that’s for others to parse.

    I will send this along to you for Googling. Disney cancelled these layoffs under pressure from outside, the poor employees dared not peep.

    IT workers my friend.
