Snipped from Deo Volente:

On Friday, we received news that the Administration was very upset about non-FA members carrying signs that proclaimed they were “on strike.” Turns out the Administration doesn’t have a legal leg to stand on with this charge; you cannot legally charge someone with striking unless they actually don’t show up to work. Joining a picket line and choosing to carry a sign proclaiming yourself on strike when you are not is a matter of free speech, which yet again the Administration seems eager to suppress. But at my site, we cheerfully acquiesced to the Administration’s concerns and broke out the art supplies. Within minutes, we had plenty of new signs for all those eager to show their support. Better signs, really.

hey admin negotiate instead of policing strike signs!

One of the new signs that appeared after the university admin announced opposition to non-FA members carrying signs saying they were on strike.
