Union Horror
25 March 2001 | by (Warminster, PA) – See all my reviews

In 1992 a striker illegally entered the Giant Mine in Yellowknife, Canada, and set a booby trap using mining explosives. 9 men were murdered. I don't know which disturbs me more: the events depicted in the film or the fact that it really happened. I don't know who of the two sides in this matter disappoints me more; The Mine Company for being so snobbish or the Union officials who could have stopped this from happening if they had stayed at the bargaining table even after they went on strike. If they had continued bargaining -- If they (both sides) hadn't been so stubborn, the whole disaster could have been avoided. The murder of 9 miners! The man who planted the bomb -- what did he hope to accomplish? I am a member in a Union. And though I feel very strongly -- as any other Union member would -- about scabs, this act of terror only resulted in hurting the miners, not helping. What was that man thinking?
