*  THE UNION representing faculty members and librarians at York
   University voted grudgingly Tuesday to end a bitter strike
   that had disrupted classes since March 20. The strike was the
   longest ever at an English-language university in Canada.

Is this a Good Thing, or a Bad Thing, York folks?  Should we be
congratulating you on being off the picket lines, or commiserating
that it all didn't do much good in the end?
