After having been off the bike since last Thursday, I got up early to commute. No
AHHHHH of the Sirens. It was like I never stopped.
Our bike tour seems so long ago and so far away. We actually it was far away, but it seems like another lifetime.
The contract negotiations at work are comming along fine. It looks as if everyone will be satisfied. We will keep our medical benefits, get a substantial raise and our retirement is safe. The only sticking point left is for the company to allow the organizing of the wireless and MCI parts of the business. They have both voted to unionize but have been blocked so far. Those workers are really pushing so they can enjoy the benefits of being a union member, with better pay, benefits and having everything in writing concerning their job. Just as companies do when they sign contracts with customers and vendors.
