As the rain fell today in front of SBC/Pacific Bell's Oakland headquarters spirits soared as Communications Workers of America Union Local 9415 held a rally. Over a hundred union members chanted, shouted, and sang at the rally which was aimed at resisting and stopping the unwarranted cutbacks and layoffs planned by SBC in the comming months. It was a wonderful day and spirits were high as the streets of Oakland echoed with the sounds of worker's unity.

A full report is expected from the union tomorrow morning with further details.
