so far it's planned to be a 1 day strike
What's the point in planning the length of a strike, especially for only one day? Should you guys hold your strike for as long as it takes to get negotiations settled? Otherwise, it's nothing but a public protest.

I wonder why THAT is.
A recent wildcat strike at the port of Calais meant that the M20 motorway between London and Dover had to be closed and turned into a lorry park.
It's a long time since the unions ran this country.
Sorry, failed quote.
"We don't film a lot in France"- I wonder why THAT is.

A 45% cut is insane. What arguments do the producers use? What are the rates for DPs,
editors, assistants, gaffers, steadicam operators and directors? Best of luck on your demands.

Oh my gosh what a disaster that will be for us! Producers won't get access to all of those famous Canadian actors like, Jim Carey, Martin Short, Mike Myers, Pamela Anderson, William Shatner, Dan Aykroyd, and..... oh never mind they all packed up and moved to the USA long ago never to return.
It's ok we'll be fine.
