<<<The other news they're reporting is that it's iffy whether the strikers will receive unemployment
payments. The state jobs commission is still deciding. I'm not sure how it will effect their decision,
but the annual 2-week company-wide shutdown (a forced vacation of sorts) starts June 27 (or
maybe it's officially the 29th - I'm not sure)>>>

My step-dad, an engineer at the Arlington, TX plant, said that the workers would have to return before the 2-week shutdown to get paid for it. Therefore, the strikers have some incentive to arrange a deal quickly, or risk losing the two weeks of vacation pay. On a sad note, apparantly the engineers usually have to work during the shutdown. Only the lines get the break.
