Only two things to point out... 1) last summer didn't amount to much because NW had an injunction against the union to implement CHAOS or any other work stoppage (courtesy of the BK judge I believe). 2) Technically there is a contract in place, one that NW had imposed via the BK court. This was not a mutually agreed to contract, though, between the union (i.e. the full membership, not just the negotiating reps) and the company, though.
