Striking GET workers get food delivery
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) - Striking bus drivers and other union employees of Golden Empire Transit District received some food help Thursday.

A special delivery arrived for the strikers: a truck full of food from Los Angeles. The truck contained canned goods.

“It’s food for our workers,” said Teamsters Secretary-Treasurer Chester Suniga. "They love it. They love to see the trucks. All the workers have teamed up together for barbecues and food and drink. They’re all sticking together.”

Suniga said these meals send a message.

“We’re standing tall, we’re united and we’re all out to help each other,” he said. “We’re ready for the long haul. If that’s what it takes.”
