Strike's End in Sight

From the New York Post.

Riedel reports optimism today, as talks enter what could be their final round.
"It's down to money and one or two work-rule issues," one source said. "But there is definitely a deal here."
But don't assume they're all becoming friends now. The attacks still fly, but reason looks like (?) it may just prevail.

Here is the Post's own graphic outlining the final compromises. Keep in mind this is Murdoch's NY Post, but even so, this seems relatively fair, based on what I know. And Riedel's reporting on this has, to my mind, been utterly fair and balanced in the good way.

One producer's priceless parting shot:

"We've got more flexibility, though we'll probably still have to carry some guys who don't do very much," one producer says.
Yeah, I'm sure that's what they say when they job-in Huey Lewis for Chicago, too.

Interesting to note that Local One says not to believe a word from that Riedel column.
