Strike, Strike, Strike!

Well, MD Robotics (who hired my company, MSC, to help them with a project and they provided me) has gone on strike! All the engineers and techs are out. As a outsider, I'm still working there, as are several others and all the mangers.

At the meeting today, management is working on reorganizing all the current projects. It looks like I'm still going to be finishing the current one (fracture of the Shuttle Inspection Boom), and they may want to use me for the follow up project as well, it's all still up in the air.

However, all this means I've got to cross a picket line, and I've got friends in it, and I'm not sure how I feel about that. I was hoping I could work out the MSC office while this lasts, and just log into the MD Robotics computers, but Dennis (project manager) wants to keep everyone close and coming into the office. Plus it looks like there's going to be lots of meetings.

The long commute is also starting to really bite. It's an extra hour and a bit out of my day, and it makes to really tough to get downtown for the early evening without cutting out uncomfortably early.

Hope the strike doesn't last long. Have a feeling it will.
