Hainsey texted the guy a few days ago and was pretty adamant about a deal getting done sometime this week/soon. Hainsey has been, I wouldn't say hardliner, but pretty behind the voice of the union. The only thing with this is, he was pretty optimistic that one week before christmas when they had those meetings in NYC. Though to say the least, he was more optimistic this time around. Take it for what it's worth.
Thanks for the info.

Although I've become rather disheartened at and by all the sources in the past months and the game that this negotiating has turned into.

This one, if legit, sounds as good as I've seen.
