"What Charles is ignoring is that the right to strike did nothing but give producers an
excuse to send work to the rim or to any country they want."
With all due respect, I'm not ignoring anything, Dave B. The right to strike has nothing to do with producers sending work overseas. If that's the case, they would have stopped doing it back in '82 when the no strike clause was introduced into the Union contract.
At this moment, can the Union formally protest studio policies other than runaway production? No, it can't unless the Union wants to find itself in breach of this contract.
If you want to be part of a Union that compromises its power of protest, that's fine with me.
