Walking the line

Having come very close to walking the line myself (while an apprentice compositor at a Thomson-era Peterborough Examiner and member of the Communications Workers of America), I know what a difficult decision it is to go on strike. Unions don’t strike on a whim; it is usually a result of breakdown in the collective bargaining process, and although it’s a tool in the union arsenal, it is seldom one used lightly.

So best wishes to my brothers and sisters from PSAC who are walking the line today up around the corner from us on Grafton St.
