Well, there's still no breaking news on KYW (all-news radio station) to signal the beginning of labor troubles at Verizon. The union has been working without a contract since midnight Sunday, and for the past three days negotiations have continued.

But I got a call from Mark today that there was a chance something would happen at noon. If the union employees staged a walkout he would be home late from work tonight. I put KYW on after I hung up from that phone call, so I'd know right away if anything happened. But noon was 17 minutes ago and there's still nothing being mentioned on the radio about Verizon. Maybe they'll stay on the job for the rest of the day, I hope.
