Well, after a roller-coaster day the coast is clear for the weekend at least. Mid-morning all signs were that a work stoppage would occur midnight tonight. By early afternoon, though, the word broke that there would be no strike this weekend, instead the company and Union are negotiating through 24-hour extensions of the strike deadline. As long as there is still negotiation there will be no strike. This is certainly good news, but I sure wish we had more details.
Unfortunately, I have after hours duty this weekend and Jie is stuck working on a last minute project, so we will both be spending at least part of Saturday at the office. That's ok, as long as there is no strike I will be at the lake next weekend for a birthday party for my grandmother.
