    'This town's only big enough for one of us' - By JENNIFER WELLS, Toronto Star
    'Us' is the operative word here. 'Us' being Inco and the Inco workers. 'Them' being Falconbridge, the Falconbridge workers and the Mine Mill local, headed by Rick Grylls. As much as Grylls and Fera have put on a common front to demand more answers of the new Inco and seek job protections, Grylls is in the unenviable position of running the last Mine Mill local in the land, with a spare 1,000 members. And he has to be worried that the merged company will have no interest in running its operations with two unions and the headaches that will deliver to all its synergistic plans.
