    I don’t think we’ll get a chance to vote on this garbage agreement by October, it might be pushed off to next year. The extension Taylor gave them doesn’t have a deadline it’s open ended. He said he thinks we’ll get to vote by October.

    This union has zero intention on striking. The 2 month extension proves this

    They’ll try to ram it through saying it’s gotta be done in time for peak.

    but, but ... If they are already in agreement on the best contract ever, why would they need more time to negotiate?

    I think Trump would order a 60 day cooling off period to avoid that, saying it might hold up grandma's meds, etc if they get diverted to other shipping services along with the holiday volume.

    "the president can order a cooling-off period for any industry if a strike endangers the "national health and safety"
