08-Feb-06 | Strike resolved

The strike of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers that interrupted work for over three months at both Delta launch sites as well as manufacturing centers in Huntington Beach, Calif., and Decatur, Ala., came to an end late last week as the union voted to accept a new three-year contract. Some concessions were made on both sides to close the deal, and Boeing is hoping to put any residual animosity aside and get the Delta program back on track.  After such a lengthy hiatus it will take a while to get organized and back up to speed, and no one involved intends to rush anything. Therefore, it will take until mid-February to determine a new launch schedule, and the next flight date is not expected until April at the earliest. (Spaceflight Now, 5-Feb-06)
