Franklin County Children's Services went on strike today. I know that there were only six votes against the strike authorization vote, so I don't know how long this will take to resolve. My best guess is about two weeks. Both sides are firmly entrenched, but both sides can't afford to stay out long.
One thing I would like to say on this issue. Nobody should be turning down wage increases in return for to retain current health care benefits or additional pension benefits in todays corporate climate. They will only end up getting cut in the future until we come up with National Healthcare Plan.
