     other unions did show support. They were overwhelmingly in support of the strike and were at all the rallies leading up to it: PSC, SEIU,and others were very visibly out in support on the picket lines, which all of our unions attended. Unfortunately, because the strike was a surprise to most of us, most unions - including the TWU - were not ready with an on-the-ground 'educate the public" solidarity campaign.
