Adventures of a Modern Day, Middle-Aged Hero, on the Glory Road(to family security)



After a couple of not totally crappy weeks at work, things are back to normal again.  This weeks biggest issue is the ongoing contract negotiations between the union and the company.  As a manager, even one light years removed from negotiations, I'm not allowed to comment on how those negotiations are going, either publically or privately.  Luckily, I don't need to comment with the Tri-City Herald around.

So, yes things were emotional this week, and it wasn't just the Union folks getting emotional.  As one of the commenters on the Herald pointed out, whatever deal the union gets is usually passed along to us exempt staff types.  By the end of the week, it was all I could do to make it through One Day More.

  1. Sounds familier. Hubby works for Verizon. They worked for a year with no contract because the folks doing the negotiating couldn't be bothered to put on their big boy britches and admit that both sides were idiots and should learn how to compromise....During that time we had one real strike, and several threats there-of, most of which weren't serious. *sigh*
