This is the strike that never ends... I can imagine what the negotiations would look like...
Gov't: I have tabled a new proposal for you. It may not be exactly what you wanted, but it'll give you what you need.
Union: Unacceptable... we're still concerned about our job security and benefits.
Gov't: But this is the final offer. This strike has gone on too long and we must reach an agreement as soon as...
Union: No! Your plan sucks!
Gov't: No, it doesn't.
Union: Yes, it does. And you suck, too.
Gov't: No. You suck!
Union: You suck and swallow!
Gov't: That's not fair. You suck!
Union: Fuck you!
Gov't: No... FUCK YOU!!
Etc., etc., etc. Wash. Rinse. Repeat. Ad nauseam.
Why can't we all get along? Do the right thing, you idiots.
