Yup, I'm right.

See here for the University's latest whinge. It seems I was right: the Union hadn't caved, and the University bargaining team don't have the brains to modify a proposal on their own.

Honestly, this isn't hard. If the University changed some details of its offer and it still was rejected, then they'd have some political leverage. Hell, they could even insist that the revised offer be taken to a GMM, and the Union membership might go for it, even over the recommendation of the bargaining committee.

But, no. The University keeps sticking to this lunatic "binding arbitration" demand, and refuses to change their proposal one iota. Given that, what possible incentive is there for the Union to change their demands?
