Inside Sudbury’s bitter Vale strike

Inside Sudbury’s bitter Vale strike -

Two sides to every story.

Which perspective will you believe?

Do I feel for the miners of Sudbury? Yes, somewhat. But to be quite frank, the union should be there to help resolve environmental, health and safety issues, not necessarily push more higher and higher premiums on wages and benefits without a resulting reduction in risk.

What it comes down to is that the union is pushing for what is in their own best interests, which happen to appeal to the greed of the miners as a whole. The problem is that the miners have already lost the battle by virtue of being on strike.

Sad that good people have to suffer for the wrong reasons.
