Real subtle

Himself proposes:
The Honourable Danny Williams, Premier of Newfoundland and Labrador, today called upon Vale Newfoundland and Labrador Limited and the United Steelworkers Local 9508 to make one final effort to resolve outstanding issues in the ongoing strike. The hope is to achieve bargained resolution prior to the commencement of an Industrial Inquiry.‬
‪‬ ‪
Susan Sullivan -- on behalf of the Provincial Government, not the Williams one, naturally -- disposes:
The Provincial Government confirms today that an Industrial Inquiry Commission into the ongoing labour dispute between the United Steelworkers Local 9508 and Vale Newfoundland and Labrador Limited will proceed and that a review into the matters impacting this strike shall commence immediately. “The Provincial Government is profoundly disappointed that the United Steelworkers and Vale have failed to resolve this dispute,” said the Honourable Susan Sullivan, Minister of Human Resources, Labour and Employment and Minister Responsible for the Labour Relations Agency. “Parties have been given full access to the conciliation and mediation support of the Labour Relations Agency and the assistance of an independent mediator, and yet they have been unable to put aside their differences and find a solution that is satisfactory to both sides.”

How hard must it suck to be a Williams Party cabinet minister?
