Rocket Workers Walk

More than one thousand Boeing Delta rocket workers went on strike today.

Launches caught in the snag include the GOES-N weather satellite, waiting to launch on a Delta 4 at Cape Canaveral; while over in Vandenberg two atmospheric research satellites, CloudSat and Calipso are scheduled to fly on a Delta 2 and there's an NRO spy sat waiting for a boost on a Delta 4.

I'm not a space labor lawyer but I understand Boeing and union folks are working to resolve the dispute, which, surprisingly enough, is all about money and benefits. (And you thought building space rockets was a labor of love.)
