I still say the owners were glad the union didn't take the deal. When have you ever heard of a company just shutting down like that? They were in bankruptcy, who knows if they would have made it out, the union was being a hassle, screw it. Shut the doors, sell off the brands in a bidding war, let the next guys be the ones to ship the jobs to China and stick our fingers in the unions eye on the way out as a bonus.
