Why is a Strike Quite Possible?

the company hates 22.4's and wants to be rid of it, but yes i'm sure they'll still leverage it for concessions, who wouldn't
If true, why not get rid of them....NOW?

IF both sides hate them as seems to be.....

We have "by local agreement".........you don't think the Union would jump at the chance to fix this?

Except....it's peak.....

Mostly because it’s a bargaining chip for each side for different reasons.

So, the union would keep the "misery" in place for leverage?

Is that why things are the way they are? Inexplicable things like classification seniority?

Why, that would start to make sense......

"Yes, we know this hurts everyone......but......" Like selling cigarettes.......but we need the taxes...."

Saturdays and 6th punches(misery).......workers being used as chips.....

can’t really change if a company is using it for a bargaining chip. And I wouldn’t call 22.4 misery. Perhaps unnecessary. Most of them here have gone RPCD faster than they would have without that article.

Six punch sucks but no one has been fired and no one will be for Saturdays only.

And I’m not sure what you mean by “the way they are”? By your own admission you make good money and are fairly satisfied and don’t even want the contract changed.

But as usual you wont miss an opportunity to be negative and bully people.
