Service Employees strike

Sorry for the long delay, anybody who was watching, but I was a little tied up with a MASSIVELY SUCCESSFUL STRIKE at the University of Illinois!  After months of seemingly endless negotiations and picketing, almost 800 food service and building service employees (including maids, linen maids, and the folks who deliver campus mail) walked off the job at midnight March 11, 2013, and set up 24-hour pickets all over campus!
