The Headline Says It All

Public Service Alliance of Canada reaches tentative agreement for striking Ekati diamond mine workers with Ekati owner BHP Billiton; union recommending yes vote to end strike that began April 7 to win first-ever contract at a Canadian diamond mine

Yep thats the headline from the press release. Talk about a run on sentence. PSAC has a lot to celebrate so in all the excitment I guess they just couldn't say enough about their victory at Ekati.

And they should be they faced scabs and union busting AFI private security.
Proving that we need Federal Anti-Scab legislation. Without scabs this would have been a far shorter strike than eleven weeks.
