"Support us to do the jobs that we do," said Local Union President Robert Wheland.

"Put you out in the street at the holidays," said locked out worker T.J. Mickel.

"Want to go to work and are willing to," said Locked out worker Joe Tackett.

Monday, Dec. 9., there is a meeting at Penelec scheduled for the morning.
