How to Teminate a Strike 1

CNN reports that there is a return to work of the striking transport workers, while negotiations proceed.

Is this not the better result than threats of jailing union officials, $1 million dollar fines and two days pay docked for one day’s strike?

If only employers would learn (or hire better advisors!) and union leaders refrain from exercising impetuous coercive power in pursuit of excessive promises to members.

Of course, it may still fall apart. A period of silence is advised from both sides until the discussions are concluded (NB: that includes a politicians and media commentators).
