Noted commentator supports Tavern workers’ fight

NYHTC - November 24, 2009 Share/Save/Bookmark


Jim Hightower, a well-known commentator, public speaker, author, and political activist, voiced support for the Tavern on the Green workers' fight to protect their union contract in his newspaper column "The Hightower Report." Hightower wrote, "[Dean] Poll wants to trash the existing agreement that had been negotiated with the union and replace it with a new 23-section dictum that essentially says, 'Poll rules.'" He helpfully included the web address of the NYHTC web site so readers of the Chronicle could stay informed about developments.
