Employess vs Bosses
Negotiations between union members and their bosses were at an impasse. The union denied that their workers were flagrantly abusing the sick-leave provisions set out by their argeement.
A working day morning at the bargaining table, the company’s head negotiator held aloft the morning edition of the newspaper, “This man,” he announced, “called in sick yesterday!”
There on the newspaper page, was a photo of the supposedly ill employee, who had just won a local bowling tournament with high score.
A union negotiator broke the silence in the auditorium.
“Incredible!” he said. “Just think of the score he could have had if he wasn’t sick!”
