Management-labor relations are a tricky thing, especially when the labor in question is a mechanics union and the management in question is No. 4 US airline Northwest. It gets even more dicey when the strike date published is the day I'm scheduled to return from a trip. It gets dicier still when my point of origination is Portland, Maine - not a hotspot for domestic travel options. Supposedly I'm not going to even know the outcome of the mediation, but hopefully I'll get an NWA flight voucher out of this.
This week has been a little slower because the lecture/team project ratio has been higher than usual. A student can only take so much sitting in the classroom on beautiful summer days! Evenings have been oddly unproductive, too, although I think I might finally be getting close on my GSRA report. That's progress, but I haven't done much in the way of cool hobby-esque stuff that makes for good blogging. Terribly sorry about that.
