Vancouver Public Library Strike Update: “Knitters for Solidarity” and the "Gentle Sherpas of the Public Library."

From the CUPE 391 Bargaining Blog as the Vancouver Public Library strike continues:
Our great team of “knitters for solidarity” got a donation of yarn from a helpful bottle collector today. Thank you to this person, who joins a group of generous yet humble donors. There will be many warm heads this winter!

Our Quarters from Heaven came to an astonishing $97. It will be the first deposit into the Cupe 391 hardship fund.

The movie festival continues with another fabulous work by D’arcy entitled “Auxiliaries: The Gentle Sherpas of the Public Library”on YouTube .

The Vancouver Sun reports on the strike (7/31/2007) noting,"city officials are wasting everyone's time by refusing to respond meaningfully with a updated offer of their own."
