Something a little less silly

It looks like after a nationwide day of action against Goodyear Tires,the striking Steelworkers and management are returning to the bargaining table. Does this mean that the union is caving, or that management knows they're on the ropes? Who knows, although in the Christmas season, I remain ever hopeful that we're looking at the dawn of the day when workers and their organizations are on the rebound.

In other news, after a close election, the man who led New York City's transit workers on that illegal strike has been reelected. This AP article claims mixed results for the strike, but the only downsides I can find in the article are the costs of the fines imposed on the strikers and their leadership. Otherwise, they walked away with a solid deal after shutting the city down for days.
