You took excerpts from

some document of an undetermined date.

And it may all be relevant.

But the fact remains that there are now 18,500 unemployed workers who may not be eligible for unemployment compensation as they chose, at their Union's behest, not to return to work.

They had the opportunity to return. They chose not to.

I believe that's called job abandonment.

No doubt there is fault on both sides.

But I remember Lee Iaccoca standing before the Chrysler labor leaders. He noted Chrysler would have jobs with a labor rate of $20, I believe. The Union wanted $5 per hour more. He stood fast and said Chrysler would not have jobs at $25 per hour.

While I may be off a couple of dollars on the amount desired and the amount agreed to, this is very similar.

History repeated itself. But, this time, Labor leaders elected to have the employees walk the plank.
