...and at the worst time of the year! :eek:

This might be a silly-ish question but won't that affect the local and even beyond market?

Sometimes people complain that they have it too good while others who don't have unions don't have the luxury or walking out. Seriously, the difference is less than 3%. Is it really going to impact them so much??? 3% raise is sweet to get every year. My mom's last raise was a quarter an hour more and that was the first raise in like 4 years.

Unions should be killed. They are bringing down everything.

Hey, when do you Aussies get your long break between school years? Is it during the June-August months, or is it during your summertime down-under? Like around the December-February months?

Amazing. Happens so often here in London that Londoners now just seem to take it in their stride (although granted, it does leave 99% of them in an even worse mood which isn't great given they're always in a bad mood anyway).

It does annoy me though. Particularly as I once made plans for an entire day in London, and then found out that the tube workers were going on strike... :censored: Ruined my plans. At least we get some notice I guess.

But don't you have alternative means of transport - like buses? Amazing how much something like this cripples a city...

Also amazing it's illegal to do this over there - not so over here...

November to March (for me anyways being a Uni student) school kids get December to February... So yes, our summer time over christmas. Time to go to the beach, have a perve, a swim, beer, BBQ and all that typical summer stuff 8)

its illegal to strike on public jobs...so those that worked for the private bus companies wont be fined.

So far all buses and subways are on strike. However, some trains like the Metro North are not on strike.

Good on the judges for imposing the fines, down with unions! Unions have beeen outdated since the 60's and are ruining the North American economy.

VW's factory here in Portugal is probably going to end, because people is complaining about big raises, and VW isn't willing to do that. Well, if you could move to the new EU countries, with lower salaries and big incentives to big companies, would you be willing to raise salaries even more? Stupid unions. They only complain about rights, without talking about their duties, too.
