You couldn't be more wrong.

If demand decreases, revenues and salaries will get reduced, but the overall landscape of the CBA negotiations will remain the same. If anything, a smaller revenue pie will make future fights over pieces of that shrinking pie (i.e. the CBA) even more contentious. See Hostess, who made pies.

Face it. None of us has any power over the labor impasse. The only thing that will fix it in the long term is trust and goodwill between the parties.
