The Strike Hardship and Member Needs Committee is holding the annual Valentine’s Day Bake Sale today, Friday, February 12, at the Duck Store at 13th and Kincaid. Funds raised in the Bake Sale will go directly into our Local Strike Hardship Fund, from which money is disbursed to members experiencing financial hardship due to a strike.
In recent years, we have been able to settle a contract with the University Shared Services Enterprise (USSE), formerly Oregon University System, without being forced to strike. However, the recent GTFF strike points out the need to stay prepared, and the Strike Hardship Fund is one way of doing this.
So, plan on stopping by the table today, February 12, between 10:00 and 2:00 to pick up some sweets for your sweetie or a delicious snack for yourself.
