Striking Internet porn pizza workers offer resolution

Green Isle Foods, the processed foods company at the center of a strike after three workers are fired for viewing Internet porn, is refusing to accept a union offer to go to an independent Labor Court.

There's something quite sad when people fall out over Internet porn.

However, relationships do not appear to be anywhere closer to a consummated hug at Ireland's Green Isle Foods pizza-making plant.

Should you not have been arrested by this pulsating tale, Green Isle Foods dismissed three workers after accusing them of enjoying Internet porn on the job. Thirty-five pizza-producing people went on strike. This was five weeks ago.

Now, according to the Leinster Leader, the workers are trying to seduce the management into some making up and kissing.

The Technical, Engineering and Electrical Union, which represents the workers, has offered a visit to the local Irish sex therapist, otherwise termed the Labor Court.

Management is playing rather hard to get. It has already refused to bare the other cheek by communicating with the union through the Irish Labor Relations Commission.

And now, a Green Isle Foods spokesman dismissed union efforts, telling the Leader that this is not an issue for group therapy.

"It (the company] will continue to interact with employees locally and directly to resolve the issue. In the meantime, operations remain as normal," he said.

I cannot possibly imagine who is making the pizzas if the workers and their highly sensitive dough-stroking fingers are outside picketing (and having pizzas delivered to them by sympathetic locals).
