Any update with the PAFSO strike?  Are they back to operation?  I heard it will slow down with the visa processing.  Does it affect application processing in the Philippines too?

Thanks for the update kaanva and rhelabs. 
I hope both parties will be happy with the result of the strike.  And operation will be back to normal.  Which I hope no more delays and more catching up.

It looks like the union has requested binding arbitration.  Here's hoping the government will agree and they can come to some agreement:
