    Well an epilogue to the strike. As of now they aren't releasing full details on the contract, but what they have released is not wonderful. $0 in strike pay, so the last 10 days are unpaid. A 1% raise in year 2 of our contract, and they got us 2% right now. 2% isn't even enough to keep up with inflation per year most years (it was in 2019 but not usually). Also the things I was striking for, our service workers need proper PPE and needed to be given a raise to Chicago minimum wage, but apparently that was decided on day 3 and the last 7 were for pay raises that we didn't really get all of. So thats fun!

    :bro:

    we need stronger unions

    We've all been assigned a training on how to deal with customers hitting on you at work. Progress is slow because I keep clicking back to the first slide to laugh at the stock photo guy they came up with.

    We just got a book in called "How to end the autism epidemic" and it's the anti-vaxxer nonsense you'd expect and before I throw it in a well I'm going to raise holy hell with our Collections department, how the actual fuck did this thing sneak through guys?

    Work. Blah. I am tired of my companies overly ambitious IT department that is constantly overstepping their bounds because they think they are the Messiah and can solve all our problems. Get the fuck back on your side and piss off.

    Oh no. I think this is a trap. I think we're going to be asked to roleplay dealing with customers hitting on us in this afternoon's meeting. Now all my brain can do is come up with terrible library pickup lines.

    "Hey, baby, are you free two weeks from today? Because I think I am due a date."

    The jokes on them though. Library employees are too introverted to even think to use pick up lines.

    When I was in library school we made a top ten library pick-up lines t-shirt for a fundraiser for our student ALA chapter. I still have mine and it still makes me chuckle.

    If you're helping a coworker get something out of dark storage trailer, don't turn around, shine the flashlight in that coworkers eyes, and then throw the heavy blunt object at them, hitting them directly in the zyphoid process.

    Got my flu jab Tuesday morning.

    And by God my shoulder didn't like it! By early afternoon until I woke up the next morning any movement of the shoulder or elbow felt like... well you know when you smack thigh first into a perfect height table corner? And not the feeling of bruising after but the immediate few moments after impact.

    Most unpleasant. It was somewhat better when I woke up but running jarred it somewhat.

    Today it's mostly ok apart from certain movements twinge a bit.

    Still, being asthmatic, it's better that than getting the flu. And it was free.

    Whew, false alarm. There was a lot of talk about making your employees roleplay as a training tool, but it did not come up as part of the discussion. So I didn't have to ask anyone "hey, baby, can I get a dinner date with you and a book on CD that's not irreparably scratched like ten discs in? Okay, so just dinner, then?"

    Job announced they're changing salaried employees to "flexible time off" in 2021, moving away from a seemingly traditional PTO accrual system.

    Technically it means there won't be an upper limit on time off you can take in a year, the company line is that you could take as much as you want assuming your work is getting done/you get adequate coverage/your manager signs off on it but... I can't help but feel like it's intended to ultimately limit time off further. I wouldn't be surprised if middle management is told not to approve time off past certain amounts, regardless of whether or not work is getting done.

    Oh also means you won't have PTO hours to pay out if you leave the job, so that blows either way.

    Oh I got my flu shot Tuesday night because I went in for a medication refill and he was like, "We're doing flu shots, do you want a flu shot?" and I looked at him, narrowed my eyes, and was like, "What's the catch?" and he returned my suspicious look with an even suspiciouser look, and replied, "Would you like to know?"

    I like my doctor.

    Take as much time as you want sounds great for things where maybe there's a defined amount of stuff to always do, but if you do something like development on an understaffed team there's always more work you could be doing.

    And a boss that will bully subordinates into taking a week off if they're unable to bring themselves to under the stupid flex time system. And bosses that will back that boss up when they do so.
