Wait a minute

Did I read this right?
Excerpt: The US Army is considering measures to force striking workers back to their jobs at a Goodyear Tire & Rubber plant in Kansas in the face of a looming shortage of tyres for Humvee trucks and other military equipment used in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Now, according to the Taft Hartley Act, which I never actually read before, but just have and wow, how did THAT get passed, says that injunctions can be filed by interested parties. Sure, I'll say the military is an interested party since the strike is effect the availability of tires and such, but that opening paragraph there scared the dickens out of me.

So here's a little note to Bernard Simon of FT.com: When you used the word "military" and "force" in the same sentence, you make people nervous.
