商务英语情景口语学习4

    对话文本
    A:Do you have the day off today?How come you're not at work now?
    B:I don't have the day off. Our labor union is staging a nationwide strike today,all of the workers in our department are supporting the labor union by participating and not going in to work this week.
    A:Are you serious? Why would they have to go to such extreme measures like a strike? Doesn't your company have a pretty good corporate image? I'll bet the folks at headquarters are going nuts over something as serious as a strike....
    B:It happens quite often,actually.Whenever there arises a dispute between the union and the executive group,the first thing they do is to call a strike. Usually it only lasts a day or two before both sides can come to an agreement and we start work again. Anyhow,it's a nice,unanticipated holiday...
    参考翻译
    今天你们放假了?你现在怎么不去上班?
    我没放假.我们工会今天要在全国举行罢工,我们部门的所有工人都支持工会,或去参加罢工或这周不上班.
    你这话当真?他们为什么采取像罢工这样极端的手段?你们公司的企业形象不是很好吗?我敢说总部的那些人对这样严重的罢工快发疯了…
    实际上,这类事情经常发生.只要工会和管理者之间出现争执,他们要做的第一件事就是号召罢工.通常在双方达成一致之前一至两天,然后我们再开始工作.不管怎样,这个意想不到的假日也不错.
