Quotes

You have the 'fatalist take-what-you-can-get-now' faction (the SMART regional negotiating committee) and then there is the 'play both sides of the fence and see what you can get' faction (the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and SMART officials); and then there is the 'principled non-compromising' faction, (Railroad Workers United)."
