Possibly going on STRIKE!
Posted 01 August 2008 - 04:23 PM
As of now, our union officials have told us that it doesn't look good at all.
Sigh......Usually this wouldn't bother me too much but hubby & I are both Verizon employees so that means, NO MONEY COMING IN FROM EITHER OF US!!!! We've been on strike before, but that was when we were dating & not part of the same household. And luckily, we've never been on strike for more than 1 week, although hubby faced a strike back in 1989 that was for 3 months!
Hubby & I have totally different feelings. He thinks we'll be out & about, on road trips, and I'm trying to figure out what bills we can pay and which we can skip! LOL
So, I am off, on my way home, with my stuff in a bag and I will sit in front of the TV & search the web for the rest of the weekend, looking for updates and keeping my fingers & toes crossed that I will be coming to work on Monday! I don't mind a few days off, but anything more than that will be tough.
Here's some info I pulled up regarding the potential strike. For those of you who haven't heard about it yet, I'm sure the news will spread if the strike becomes official.

We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!
We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!
