Local 888 members at the Holyoke Soldiers Home held a T-shirt “day of action” on Sept. 21. In a display of solidarity, the overwhelming majority of workers that day wore union T-shirts in protest of chronic understaffing at the facility.

Their action was in support of providing quality care to the veterans, while demanding greater respect for the workers who care for them.
