That is to say, we've been ordered back to work by the minister of labor, who has demanded a forced wage negotiation (the "mandatory wage committee"). Any decisions made by this committe are binding. Our union is very disappointed that the minister of labor would do such a thing, especially since our current government includes both the Labor and the Socialist Left parties, parties that should understand and support more than most the right to strike.
It'll be weird going back to work, to a workplace where things have been piling up for over a week, and where all previous deadlines and due dates are moot. And where we are still at odds with management since the strike issues are not yet resolved.
