Grab.......Good or evil is not the issue......Action is the issue. In that context, the KKK has forced change through action............and so has Mo Dees and the Southern Poverty Law Group. Each has taken radical action in different ways and forced the talkers to in the middle to take a stand and move off top dead center. Yeah, they would eventually get there, but we'd be ages behind.....and maybe that's okay. A boat that makes no waves is not moving.
I'm not going to beat this one to death as it's a topic best discussed in 3-D and not through brief paragraphs here. In the case of the FA, it seems that action and not simple words is needed in this matter. As I said before, better words implying the action would help. Letting AM know that the FA would not cross a picket line and that should it still exist 2 months before the meeting, they would not honor the contract. In the meantime, make alternate arrangements.
I notice that the FA listserv seems to be running about 3-1 against the current position and in favor of an alternate.
