    Do you want to spend a weekend afternoon in June participating in an amazing, educational, artistic & fun project bringing awareness to the how the labor mural removed from Maine’s Dept. of Labor relates to our lives today?

    Send Zeraph an email at bangorcommunitymedia

    Bangor Media Collective is working with Food AND Medicine and Eastern Maine Labor Council to create a “living” piece of labor history.

    We will raise awareness through this project about the challenges people still face today at work. Six awesome, committed youth are needed for this fun project. To get involved, contact Zeraph at bangorcommunitymedia@gmail.com.

    How much has changed since MSNA unionized nurses… 

    How much has changed since MSNA unionized nurses in Bangor, Maine voted to strike last winter? The nurses’ employer, EMMC, is still unwilling to compromise and find a solution to nurses’ concerns about safe staffing.Overworked nurses have grown concerned that patient care may be seriously affected by poor nurse-to-patient staffing ratios. Watch the video on the strike, and consider dropping in tomorrow night at the Bangor Public Library for the Public Forum on Staffing and Healthcare Quality at EMMC. This Forum is April 25th at 6 pm in the 3rd floor lecture hall.
