I too sense that Sutter is on the defensive, with all the slick advertising I see in the mail and in the newspaper. Why do they think it's about public relations and putting a shiny smile on things ? That will not cut it.

Ya'll should find a way to publicize your "contribute to a striker/strike fund" site. A lot of people in the area would contribute.

14 more former Military Mercenaries hired CPMC security agents were fired for not having proper paperwork to conduct security details in California in addition to extensive criminal records. These security agents were obtained through Soldier of fortune magazine.

Now they have the police to hassle strike supporters. I drove by the CPMC California Campus on Saturday morning and customarily honked my horn, I was pulled over by the police and given a lecture on my immature support of the strikers. Hey the cop said do you know what its like to try to get a good nights sleep in the hospital. I was under the impression that the California Campus had no overnight beds but I only my past experience to rely on as a patient there so I did not want to refute his assertion that there were overnight patients at the facility.

He said I was committing a nuisance and that my honking would do nothing to resolve the strike.

He basically said that the strikers were causing unnecessary hardships for the patients and the neighborhood. I did not want a ticket but I said that it was CPMC's problem too. He continued to side with law and order and had no sympathy for the strikers at this point.

Well he didn't give me a ticket and I promised to be a good girl and not honk. He probably felt smug and superior for having that discrectionary power over me.

You know if the police were on strike I would be the first to support them.

Management always hopes that with intimidation and stonewalling that you will go away. Keep the faith if you don't hear my horn honking I am still behind you 100%.
