I'm going to lose my head... I'm stuck with a computer in the garage, and a laptop in the living room. For the last 3 weeks, I've been hitting refresh on everything I can to find the latest news or rumors on what the company and union are doing. I've even been blogging like crazy. Sure, I could go get a second job, but the refresh button has me glued to the internet. I try working on the car to get my mind off it for a while, but I glance up and see the monitor...and I go over and start reading the blogs...every hour for about 25 minutes. I can't get enough Corona, just cause I'm stressing out. The gray hairs are now gray streaks and I'm only 33. :cry2: I should be trying to catch up on building one car and doing something to the house, but I just can't get away from the damn computer...it has me under some kind of a freakish mind control machine. I crave any info for the latest news of the strike, any video uploads, pics, news stories, blogs and what not. Also...I've had it with unions..after wednesday...I'll prolly cross if there is no good news. Tommorrow I go pick up the stipend check for $232 and a few guys from my shift have planned to go there to just to talk to an union representative...to find out what the hell is going on. They will have a meeting for the teamsters on wed, and the union will also have a meeting with the company wed. IF nothing comes of this, or no new news happens, then I'll resign friday, and return to work as a scab on monday...and prolly start life in a living hell. I already have a few freinds that have crossed, and they say nothing but great stuff, and some disturbing things as well. Most of the rumors the blogs state, such as the company wants to do away with the union completely, and just have agency workers....is almost true. The outsourcing of certain shops...is mostly true. They even claim that the S-92 production and flight hanger will move to PA...and sadly...thats also somewhat true. I work on the S-92 in the flight hanger, and I got to much crap to move again, and the wife finally made some freinds in the area, so for us to move will not be an option. So I'm going nuts about what the final out come will be. Plus they are saying that some of the jobs done by the union guys have been tested, analized, and found to not take as much time as the 25 year+ old farts claimed them to be...so when most of them get back, their going to get layed off. A lot of trucks loaded with stuff has been leaving, and that not the stuff that normally leaves the plant. Helicopters have been flatbedded out of the plant...maybe for a show, or for good. I'm just going nuts here.
