Sounds about right.
Knowing Texas I'm surprised they didn't lower the minimum wage.
1981 PATCO Strike:
In February 1981, PATCO members began negotiations with the FAA for a reduced 32-hour workweek, a $10,000 pay increase for all air traffic controllers and a better retirement benefits, but management stalled the talks. PATCO members went on strike Aug. 3, 1981. The strike brought widespread flight cancellations and delays, and 22 of the nation’s busiest airports were directed to reduce their scheduled flights by 50 percent. Though the strike grabbed the public’s attention, technically, it violated a 1955 law that banned strikes by government unions, though several government unions had previously declared strikes without penalties. President Ronald Reagan, whose endorsement from PATCO was one of three union endorsements he received in the 1980 presidential election, declared the strike a "peril to national safety" and ordered controllers back to work within 48 hours. PATCO did not endorse the Democratic Party candidate because of a bad relationship with the FAA during the Carter administration, and because Reagan told them he understood the union’s struggle for better conditions. However, on Aug. 5, most of strikers were fired and their union fined $1,000 each day members remained on strike. Fired workers were replaced by controllers, supervisors and staff personnel not participating in the strike and in some cases, by military controllers. Union members, activists and others were outraged and on Sept. 19, about 500,000 supporters marched on Washington, D.C. in support of the striking air traffic controllers. On the picket lines, militant strikers were arrested, jailed and fined. The union was fined millions of dollars, and its $3.5 million strike fund was frozen. PATCO was decertified and the new air traffic controllers organized the National Air Traffic Controllers Association (NATCA), but the union had no bargaining power. It was not until Aug. 12. 1993, that President Bill Clinton, would end the prohibition on rehiring the fired controllers. In 1996, Congress passed the Federal Aviation Reauthorization Act, which finally returned to air traffic controllers the ability to bargain collectively with the FAA for wages and personnel matters.
