Contract stress

LANL Contract Transition Seems to be Causing Much Stress These Days

Subject: Sad News

I am sad to report that an employee collapsed and died this morning while walking into work at the Chemistry and Metallurgy Research Facility (CMR) at TA-3. I know all of us feel the pain and loss when a member of the Laboratory family passes, and our thoughts are with his loved ones during this difficult time. Out of respect for the family, we are not releasing the employee’s name at this time.

Tragic events such as these are a reminder of the importance of taking care of ourselves and each other. Please remember to take time for you and your family. LANL is a large and complex place and this is a poignant reminder that our people are the heart of the institution.

Well said Director Wallace. In 2012, we lost a young NIF LSEO technician, but LLNS Leadership did little to reflect on the tragedy, or the emotional shock felt by his NIF coworkers.

I am not saying that the some people might be stressed but there is no reason to believe this had anything to do with the contract change or being stressed. Sometimes this happens and some things are out of our hands.
