make up your mind Donna

OK, so Donna Shalala finally wrote to the Miami Herald to say something about the hunger strikers UM UNICCO and SEIU. But I'll be darned if I can figure out what she really meant.

She starts off by saying that she's between a rock and a hard place. Then she said the problem is between UNICCO and the SEIU. She says UM is out of this because it's not UM's fight and we are neutral.

How can she claim neutrality when she told UNICCO that as of a specified date the workers will be getting a raise in pay and the opportunity to buy into a health benefit plan? Of course it's not what the union wanted, but it was a good beginning.
Was making that announcement remaining neutral?

Then she says that UNICCO is not negotiating in good faith. OK, that's true but she goes on to blame not the company but the worker's union organization activities -their right to unionize.

Her logic makes no sense. I can't see her point, because I guess she has none.

NO matter what she says it sure sounds like she is anti-union and doesn't want to be blamed for it.
