This is a very unfortunate event and an unfortunate day in the history of labor relations in this city.
I am confounded by the tortured tale of these negotiations. It is unfortunate that it had to come down to an illegal strike.
Without question, many people suffered severely as a result of this strike.
A lot of people would not be sympathetic to the fact that the union would seem to be suffering. A lot of people would take the position the union does not warrant sympathy.
The potential danger to the continued existence of the union rests with the adjudication of these fines.
