The government is not interfering in the contracts or the negotiations. All the government is doing is saying the parties have no right to harm innocent third parties because they cannot agree.
Not if it means the government interfering with a contract signed by two voluntary entities.
And that will be where CP goes if it cant convince the union to agree. Bond holders don't need a right to strike to protect their interests. Why do unions?
Its the governments job to UPHOLD such agreements, not invalidate them. Like I said... we already have a mechanism that allows companies in this position to restructure their debts and obligations.
