Detroit-area nurses continue strike at Labor Day march

4

DETROIT (AP) - Dozens of striking nurses
joined thousands of union workers in march-
ing through the city yesterday, calling for better
working conditions, more jobs and a change of
leadership in the White House.
Labor leaders said the event marked the first
time they could remember a nurses' union par-
ticipating in the annual Labor Day parade in
Detroit.
About 400 nurses have been on strike against

Mount Clemens General Hospital for about a
month. About 200 of the nurses and their sup-
porters came to march.
"I've never marched in a parade. I've never
been on strike before, and I've been a nurse at
Mount Clemens for 24 years," said Sarah Kraft,
a 57-year-old nurse in the medical telemetry unit.
"I'm proud that we have the support out here to
do this, but I'm sad that it's come to this."
The nurses joined workers from more than

300 other local unions, including those repre-
senting ironworkers, waterproofers, pipefitters,
roofers and teachers.
The groups walked, carried banners and rode
on flatbed tractor-trailers that chugged from old
Tiger Stadium to a downtown monument honor-
ing the labor movement. Some marchers carried
American flags and others toted signs and wore
T-shirts supporting Democratic presidential
nominee John Kerry.

Ron Gettelfinger, president of the United Auto
Workers, said workers need to remember how
important their votes are.
"(Former UAW President) Walter Reuther
once said that what you negotiate at the bargain-
ing table can be taken away in the halls of Con-
gress. And that's a fact today. The importance of
the ballot box cannot be overstressed," Gettelfin-
ger said at the parade.
Some marchers wore red T-shirts that carried

messages of support for Kerry.
"The traditional message of this is a day of
celebration for working families and the strides
they've made through the years," said Mike
Fikes of Flint, Michigan organizing director
for the Laborers International Union of North
America. "But this year more than any other
year in the past, our members are motivated
by the presidential election. We need to get out
and vote for John Kerry."

for the same time period, nine litter violations and 47
citations for having open intoxicants or consuming
alcohol in public.
Thursday proved to be one of the biggest nights for
partying, including a block party on Greenwood Ave-
nue accounting for nearly half the violations issued
Thursday night.

Hoornstra said parties like those on Greenwood
become dangerous because they close off access to
safety vehicles. He pointed to the fire at 501 Lin-
den Street as a situation where streets needed to
be open.
"We don't go in there (to shut down parties) to be
mean," he said. "If that party had happened in the
middle of Greenwood and that fire had happened, it
would have been devastating."
Hoornstra said the numbers probably won't be iso-

lated to Welcome Week parties. "We usually stay pret-
ty busy through football season," he said. He added
that violations sometimes drop off in November.
LSA freshman Garrison Paige said many of the
people out partying weren't students at the University.
According to the DPS crime log, more than three-
quarters of the liquor violations during the football
game were attributed to individuals not affiliated with
the University.

"These are the best years of your life,"
he said. "Make the most of them."
Director of Undergraduate Admis-
sions Ted Spencer delivered statis-
tics reflecting the class's "exceptional
(strength) in both academic and extra
curricular endeavors."
With 6,571 new enrollees, the class of
2008 is the largest in the University's his-
tory. "Every year the academic quality of
our incoming class rises," said Univer-
sity President Mary Sue Coleman, who
emphasized the value of higher education
using personal reflections from her own
1960s collegiate experience, captured in
her travel journal.
Employing the maxim "traditions
begin with you," the five-day Welcome
to Michigan program is designed to
familiarize new students with the
University. It includes more than 200
events sponsored by various student

groups, University departments and
community organizations.
"I thought the speeches were really
heartwarming," said Stacy Frigiero, an
LSA freshman from New York. "(The
ceremony) made me feel closer to the
school."
Dominic Mattman, an international
student from Switzerland, said he was
amazed by the enthusiastic display of
the University's traditions. "The whole
thing was quite astonishing."
Convocation coordinator Julie Ash-
ley said she felt the ceremony was an
encouraging experience for the new-
comers. "Students gained a good solid
feel of what the next four years will be
like," she said.
Diane Selander, the mother of a
freshman from Rochester Hills, left
the ceremony feeling enthusiastic about
the upcoming year. "(There were) great
points to get students fired up for school
and excited about the learning adven-
ture that's ahead."
