Thumbs up, down

Dear Mr. Editor:
I would like to give a solid thumbs up to the striking members of CUPE #65 (Association for Community Living). Their strike for a decent pay raise and pension improvements deserves the support of every working man and woman in Fort Frances.
I believe we all strive to provide our family with a decent standard of living, and look forward to retiring with dignity.
To Ms. Alanna Barr and her board of directors, a solid thumbs down. It is time to get back to the bargaining table. And do what’s right between the parties and get this strike behind us.
The consumer (or client) deserves nothing less.
Thank you,
Allan T. Bedard
