It's Officially a Little Ironic...

The union workers (drivers, mechanics, and ticket agents) at the company I work for have been in union negotiations forEVER. They rejected the last proposal and their contract expires tonight.

So if they strike after midnight tonight--which is a VERY real possibility--just about EVERYONE in my office will get laid off!

I won't be alone.

Is it wrong that I'm kind of rooting for a strike?

I've gotten many compliments on it, but I always remember to give props to agentmissa, who posted the original pic in her journal--I stole it and cropped it up to make the avatar.

The strike was averted, in case anyone's interested.

I hate unions.

Except for New York Jim who runs the safety rep elections. He opens my box.
