[olympiaworkers] Defend fired bus driver

Dear Defenders of free speech, labor activists, and fellow bus drivers:

Yesterday's PI had a front page story about the Issaquah School District
bus driver
who was fired for flipping the bird at Bush while he was driving
through town last Summer in his motorcade.
If the school district gets away with this driver's termination
it will set a terrible precedent for all of us. We don't give away
our free speech rights when we punch into the time clock.
The school district is saying they would have fired her no
matter who she flipped off. Will they fire us for honking support
to striking workers as well?
Below is the contact info for the union that is representing her.
Please let them know you support this driver and want to help
in whatever way needed. As soon as I get the school district's
info I'll forward it along. Feel free to write letters to the newspaper
as well.
Let free speech live!
In solidarity Linda Averill
