It will be interesting to see how serious the unions are about saving jobs. I wonder what union and non-union employees would say if personally asked for the concessions to save their jobs. It almost sounds like a threat that the company will fold without the concessions. What a nightmare for everyone!

In this environment I'd expect the unions to concede. The unions have a weak hand right now.
