Clerical workers are striking at UC campuses and Berkeley Lab today. Last month there was a strike of University Professional and Technical Employees, and the month before that there was a strike by a union of State, Municipal and County Employees.
I suppose I should pay more attention to this stuff, but I'm finding that I tune out a lot walking around Berkeley these days. Someone's always yelling in my face about something, either a homeless person, picketers, or protesters (oil, war, marijuana, impeachment, etc.), so the message, unfortunately, doesn't always get through.
Hmm, I remember reading something about a possible BART and ACTransit strike last week. And it looks like Northwest mechanics are preparing for a strike. And there's talk of an NBA strike at the beginning of next season, which will probably go about as well as the hockey lockout. Oh yeah, and there's the San Francisco hotel workers strike. It looks like those who called the union a dinosaur were premature.
meh. Who is John Galt?
