Listen carefully to what I'm about to say:

NO ... ONE ... CARES.

These reports and articles have been coming out for years now and clearly document the problems yet nothing changes.

The bureaucracy coming from DOE, NNSA and the LLC 'for-profit' lab management team only gets worse with time. This trend is not going to reverse.

The only way this will change is if the technical staff of the Labs unionize or form a coalition of some sort. Unfortunately, there appears no interest on behalf the workers to do so. Until then, the LANS/LLNS/SNL LLCs and DOE/NNSA will continue to have THEIR WAY with the technical staff in terms of benefits, salary actions, personnel evaluations, promotions, demotions, unwanted job transfers, actions such as retirement incentives, policy, treatment, etc. And frankly, the LANS/LLNS/LLCs just love it as is, their is NO ONE or NO BODY standing in their way.

Terrific - science steeped in mediocrity.

There you go, case closed. The typical attitude of most scientists at the NNSA labs. The beatings and layoffs can now continue. Management will be the sole entity making all arguments in behave of the staff, per the usual. How's that working out for ya?

My, that was quick!

Another "Lab weenie". They are all over the place, just look around.

The Labs scientists will either hang together or hang separately. The last 10 years argue that they woudl rather hang separately. Just watch this blog and the hatred that LANL people seem to have for LLNL people. They'd rather see their lab die than form a community with their mostly likely partners: other WP scientists.

Unions can work to the scientists benefit. The union at NASA Ames got some of the worst "full cost recovery" stupidity turned around because they have a union. These were PhD scientists not too proud to realize a union could serve their interests. It is a shame that the WP Labs staff lack such wisdom. It might be the only shot they have left, but time is running out.

What union did the scientists at NASA Ames use. Can you give us more info on their path to success, 9:04 AM?

Great quote: "A person spent half their work time chasing charge numbers."

sound familiar?

What is wrong with this country? We are letting the bureaucrats and paper-pushers destroy what is left of our nation's capabilities!

You are watching a form of national suicide being played out and no one seems ready to stop it.
