Its been decades since I was a Union Vice President so my memory isnt all that good on this stuff but I seem to recall in situations like this there is a government appointed person whose title I cannot recall that one can contact in these situations. They dont automatically get involved you have to contact them. I wish I could remember the tittle of the office but I cant. IIRC if you get them involved the company usually folds because bringing them in gets the government on your side. Maybe some other freeper can help.
