Calling in Sick

Salary negotiations between a union and a big organization weren’t going well. The main issue was that management believed workers were abusing the sick leave policy.

During one tense meeting, a manager hurled that morning’s newspaper onto the conference table.

“Look at this! This employee called in sick yesterday!”

The union negotiator looked and saw a picture of the employee holding up a trophy for winning second prize in a golf tournament.

“What do you say to that?” the manager demanded.

“Wow,” the union official said. “If he hadn’t been sick, he might have won!”
