Anyone who reads the original post will see that you did not
undertand the meaning of the question (perhaps you have not read
Pashukanis and Althusser?), and will also see that it  was in no way
a  question hostilely directed at you or anyone else.

The article pointed  to increasing pressures on union workers to
agree to wage freezes. What are the conditions of possibility for
such contracts to be legally and ethically binding?

And you still haven't answered the question. Are you saying that this signing
and ratifying were done freely? Who exactly signs and ratifies freely
so that the contracts can be binding?

So in your Mr Solidarity sign off, I am not included?

Not with me then?
