Demonstrators for Windstream meet

Those people distributing handbills outside the Capital Hotel this morning?

They were members of the Communications Workers of America, on hand for a meeting of Windstream shareholders. (Windstream is the company created by the spinoff of Alltel wireline operations and is based in Little Rock.) The CWA says it's unhappy about a 2009 decision by the company to end health benefits for retirees. A union rep provided the photo, by the way.
