    Northwest strikers seek solidarity to beat back union-busting attack - BY NELSON GONZALEZ, The Militant, NY
    Making clear its antiunion objectives, Northwest announced August 25 that it was prepared to operate "indefinitely" with replacement workers and was considering giving permanent jobs to 1,500 strikebreakers it is using as a temporary workforce. The company said it can do this under the antiunion Railway Labor Act.

    Labour Day Poses Hard Questions - By Peter Rachleff, New Socialist Group, Canada
    These labor leaders are able to offer reasons for their refusal to assist the 4,400 mechanics, cleaners, and custodians, who belong to AMFA. AMFA did not affiliate with the AFL-CIO. It “raided” the International Association of Machinists, took away some of their members. AMFA advocates and leaders scorned other airlines workers, some say, even used derogatory terms, thought themselves “better” than other workers.

    There is probably some truth to every one of these accusations, but how do they stack up compared to the damage that NWA management is doing to all of its workers and that other airlines and other employers will seek to do to theirs?
