Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
As I was reading, I got contrarian thoughts although I know nothing of the details.

What if the strike is controversial among unions because the union heads are playing politics and refused to cooperate with GDL?  GDL already feels left out.

(What if) any strike would get bad media coverage because the media is neoliberal?

What if GDL fails?  The other unions are free to keep trying separately, as they do now, calling GDL an outcast.  But if GDL wins a better contract, the others will try harder to match it and "management" will be weakened.

(As to Beck and Munte, the photo makes me want to slap both of them with some reality.)
