new expressions from the NY strike.

I learned several new expressions from the strike in NY.



Media blackout (news blackout)
= a situation in which particular pieces of news or information are not allowed to be reported

I heard this when the mediator had a conference.
************************
"framework" vs. "deal"

framework = a set of beliefs, ideas or rulesthat is used as the basis for making judgements, decisions, etc.

deal = an agreement or arrangement, especially in busuness or politics.

It's about an agreement between the union and the authority. Actually, I can't really understand these differences. I hope I can see the differences in the future.
**********************

I have one more word I don't know.
It sounded like "sug" "suggish" or "sag" "saggish". What's this?? I couldn't look up the word. It comes from the Mayor's words. I think it might be an insulting or impolite expression but I don't know what that is. I hope I can figure it out soon!
