Longshoreman aren’t under the RLA. They are under the NLRA.For starters, there'd be a lot more good faith bargaining early on with the threat of self-help.
That level of pressure certainly works for the Longshoremen.
Unionized workers under the NLRA are free to strike when their CBS expires. CBAs under the RLA don’t expire, they become amendable.
Compare apples to apples, not oranges.
