I will not cross the picket line.

For the past few months, the unions that operate at the North Orange County Community College District have been negotiating a new contract.

At this time, talks are at an impasse. If the worst should happen, and the teachers go on strike, I give my word that I will not cross their lines. I will hold up a sign and walk with them. I give my word as a teamster. It is an act of treason against my union oath to cross a picket line, and I believe in the power of the union.
