  1. I wrote to Labor Notes too trying to reach Marie Choi. I too am from New Jersey http://oxtogrind.org/archive/902. I have a long history with labor, and I have a fresh paradigm for action which will enable labor to take over much more than what’s highlighted in http://www.zcommunications.org/rank-and-file-slate-takes-over-giant-california-campus-local-by-marie-choi. It will also create a watershed in history for API people. Thanks, ROx
