  1. The only thing Kate Blumm from DOITT didn’t mention in her interview was the fact that there is also a collective bargaining clause which was never mention. She said they have no jurisdiction over the strike aspect of the spectrum franchise agreement ? I would think collective bargaining is largely a key point in this matter in which spectrum should be found in default as well. I think it’s being over looked.
