So what if they give up some concessions? In the end, they may end up with fewer contractual rights, and a bit less money, but considering their current work conditions and compensation, it's likely not going to affect them on any level.

And yes, I'll probably get the "the owners should stop being greedy," bit, but it's going to be 50/50. I dont think you can blame the owners for being greedy if they want the revenues split halfway down the middle, despite how you think revenues are secretly being divided.
