what are they striking for? give us some facts. with the economy the way it is today, people are lucky to have jobs and to even have the opportunity to pay for their own health care. try to get it on your own if you do not get it though an employer. count your blessings folks and trade your suv for a hybrid.

Greedy unions dont 'shive a git'about the workers.They suck their blood from our checks,drive Cadillacs,and go on vacations(aka conventions),on our dime.Meanwhile we get a quarter an hr raise.....

How about an agreement where everyone wins? It's called mediation and I hope they have a good labor negotiator working for both sides.The economy is at a point where no side can afford to suffer.
