    That's the sad part.  In matters of unions, there is a time to pick and choose your battles and this wasn't one to fight.  What folks will read is a small union strike crippled and killed Twinkies where microwaves cannot.   That's bad PR no matter how you slice it as the average American isn't going to go digging into financial records or court statements.  

    I do support the rights of workers, but this wasn't the place to make the statement.  If this one shop can cripple the company, wait for them to emerge from Chap. 11, then take the fight when they don't have that protection.  

    Disclaimer: I work in a union shop.

    Keep the faith and walk the path.
