There is a lot of news on the labour front these days:
*An NHL lockout is looming if the league and players don’t come to an agreement before Sept. 15;
*CAW members tell the Big Three auto makers they want a bigger piece of the pie in return for helping save the industry by accepting concessions during the recession;
*Ontario teachers are balking at accepting a partial freeze of raises imposed by Dalton McGuinty’s Liberal government.
Do you see any parallels or common themes in these three situations? Or are they all distinct?
