Ms Lockout 2005 rocks

Week One is almost under our belt and one thing we've all developed a taste for is taking naps. Almost everyone I've talked to takes one as soon as they get home from the picket line. We're sore, tired, wet, frustrated, anxious, and sometimes miserable. Dave Taylor says his legs are more sore from picketing everyday than from running his usual 19 mile jogs. Still no news from the negotiation front; in fact the union reps have gone home because there hasn't been any movement with the CBC to meet again. I know they're in a tough situation, and must be exhuasted with the talks... but my my heart couldn't help sink at this news. This picket stuff was fun for maybe two days... it's getting old fast. Ms Lockout 2005 paid us a visit. Bob Carty, Michael Munnik and the rest belt out their tunes every day and with such love. They really help keep spirits high. The website committe have their site running and the food committee is organzing a corn roast for next week. The communications team reminds me of the yearbook committee in high school. They disappear into meetings for most of the day, resurfacing with new tasks for the rest of us. They're working on a Lock Out Live radio - a guerrilla type show to be aired from Sparks St. People are trying to use their minds worried their creative juices might start to dry up. This lock out is either bringing out the activist in us, or the stubborn mule. Some run around making hand outs, recruiting souls into projects, making new posters while others refuse to partake in the long term planning efforts, hoping inner growlings will us back to work. As I mingle between the picketers, I can't help but notice the nervousness in people's laughter, the slight bitterness in the jokes, and a slight heaviness in the steps we take. We all support the reasons why we're locked out, but as Louise Elliott put it - it's the uncertainty making us anxious. We all want to know what's happening, who's telling us the truth, when can we go back to work!!?

In the meantime, bring on the corn roast! Sing another tune, Bob! And let's figure out what to wear for the costume competition on Monday...
