Labor Negotiations

Negotiations-1Negotiations between union members and their employer were at an impasse.

The union denied that their workers were flagrantly abusing their contract’s sick-leave provisions.

One morning at the bargaining table, the company’s chief negotiator held aloft the morning edition of the newspaper, “This man,” he announced, “called in sick yesterday!” There, on the sports page, was a photo of the supposedly ill employee, who had just won a local golf tournament with an excellent score.

A union negotiator broke the silence in the room. “Wow,” he said. “Think of what kind of score he could have had if he hadn’t been sick!”

    I have a friend who is an avid golfer… scratch golfer. I can only imagine one thing that would keep him off the course, and it ain't sick – they have to close the course. Bless his heart.

    It was hard getting a photo of Isabella yawning because she doesn't yawn much since she's so well rested! πŸ™‚ Angel yawns a lot though! Hope you're having a great day! Scritches to Little Bit!
