We have normality. I repeat, we have normality. Anything you still can't cope with is therefore your own problem

so the strike is over, the Replacement workers are all back home, and the union brotherhood is back on the job. ultimately, the deal that was accepted was fundamentally the same as the one that was on the table when they called the strike. The strike is being generally viewed as unnecessary.

What it means is that the Management employees can, and will, fill in if a union wants to hold us over a barrel. So I don't expect a strike at the CPR for at least another ten years. Unless, of course, we outsource all the management employees, and there's not enough to fill in for striking workers, and then they can have pretty mich anything they want...

But I'm glad to be home.
