[QUOTE=me2]In some areas strike breakers have precedence of employment. If they union returns to work the strike breakers keep their jobs and the union guys must wait until a vacancy appears.

At least that is my reading of it

Replacement Workers
Employees who strike to obtain better wages, hours, and working conditions are referred to as “economic strikers.” Workers may, however, be hired to replace them, and these replacements need not be let go when the strike is ended. As a practical matter, the economic striker may lose his job, but it is unlawful for an employer to express it in those terms.

These rules probably vary from state to state and country to country.

Thing is though, these players are not striking, they are locked out and don;t have a CBA anymore. That has to change things I'd imagine. Not sure how though.
