Of course this is concerning to businesses. It's concerning to the union members as well. How can they plan for the future (which could include plans for new housing, a new vehicle, new travel, major renovations... large ticket items) when they aren't sure if they can stay on top of the payments? If they don't know if their jobs will be cut, salaries frozen, etc, HOW can they plan? Time for those involved in negotiations to get their fingers out and get these 'paused' contracts settled and renewed.
