A Prof Responds to the Post Below

While I respect my colleague’s well-thought-out concerns with a strike, I have to disagree with the idea that no strike would pose less deleterious effects.

Once you undermine the union, and a ‘no’ vote undoubtedly be perceived as such, it’ll be very difficult to rebuild the hard-fought credibility we have earned since 1970. Quite simply, in 4 years, the imposed terms will be deeply entrenched, and it would take an even longer strike to undo the damage.

I think it’ll be an unmitigated disaster to vote ‘no.’
