[SUPER=03-Danville/Last Week;]

The United Steelworkers of America union has broken off contract negotiations with Goodyear and no new talks have been scheduled.
The union's contract with eleven Goodyear plants, including Danville, expired April 19th, but had been extended on a day-to-day basis while talks continued. Major issues include job security, health care for retirees and restructuring debt. The contract remains in effect for now because both sides had agreed to a 72-hour notice before termination. The Danville plant employs two thousand union members.

But this June wedding has a few dissenters deciding to speak now and refusing to hold their peace.
A Tech graduate from Roanoke (Will Webber) wrote: "Virginia Tech continues to bias its academic mission by favoring sports over education. After all, the name of the school was changed from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University to Virginia Tech just so that the jocks could pronounce the words. Tech's original stance in all of this was the correct and ethical one. Then: We're being left out and we're going to lose money and stature because we were not chosen. It's unfair to us and all the others left behind. Now: Yippee! They love us! They really, really love us! I hang my head in shame."
