Read the story. Or the first line of the teaser at the top of this page.

"Read the story."

The story doesn't seem to gibe with the headline. The worker wanted to collect overtime under the current Union contract . That has NOTHING to do with "stalled talks" over the next contract. Or the Union itself, for that matter, unless he was instructed to do what he did. If that's the case, lock them both up and throw away the key.

Sabotaging the instruments or controls on an aircraft can be argued as a act of terror. This idiot will never breath free air again.

If you think the sabotage of an American airliner is union related you're simply nuts. We have millions of union members who would be the first peopke ti turn in a saboteur like that. When your ideology leads you to believe such nonsense it's time to find a new ideology.
