Local 108 staged yet a third rally - in as many weeks - in front of Strauss Auto on Route 46 in Lodi. The rally was attended by over 50 union and community supporters. The message at the rally was “Give us a Fair Contract.” At the Rally Local 108 President Charles N. Hall, Jr. called on Strauss management to give back also. The workers at Strauss deserve better than the treatment Strauss is doling out.
The rally was attended by Bergen County Freeholders Vernon C Walton and Bernadette P. McPhereson, State Senator Robert Gordon, Englewood Councilman Jack Drakeford, and Bergen County NAACP President Estena Baker.
Also at the Rally was a huge 15 foot inflatable rat which expressed Local 108's outrage at Strauss management for their continuing to press for unreasonable contract demands.
