Got this email yesterday from Sensata Worker, Tom Gaulrapp:
Today is my last day of work at Sensata Technologies after 33 years on the job, making high-quality, American auto sensors for car companies like Chrysler and GM.http://action.99uniting.org/...
And tomorrow—Election Day—I'm going to get up, I'm going to go to the polls, and then I will go and sign up for unemployment compensation for the first time in my life.
On behalf of all of the Sensata workers here in Freeport, Illinois, I wanted to thank you for turning the offshoring of our jobs into a national news story that people are paying attention to. We hope that when people go to the polls tomorrow, they remember what a Romney Economy did to our American dream.
Find your polling place and let’s go out and vote tomorrow. Even if you know yours, forward this [link below] to your friends and family—because that just might be the reason they stay home tomorrow.
More below the Solidarity Squiggle.
And then this morning, another email:
I’m here at “Bainport” -- the county fairgrounds that we’ve called home for the past 56 days, across the street from Sensata -- and I’m getting ready to head to the polls.http://youtu.be/...
Whether you’re about to do the same, or if you just need something to do while you wait in line to cast your ballot, I wanted to share with you this amazing short film about our Sensata fight so far:
When you go into the voting booth today, make a statement for all of us in Freeport. Say that you don’t want a Romney Economy.Fellow Workers,
Sensata Factory Worker
This is a small request. Takes only a few minutes to pass on the link and video.
Let us keep these fellow workers in mind as we go to the polls today.
