I think a good way to get around the whole contract issue is to do what Keily is saying, make it a stipulation that the system or a major percentage of it (i.e. the carriages) are manufactured in Hamilton, the city might even be able to negotiate with Seimens that some sort of deal is made for the plant to be bought by the winning bidder. That'd be incentive for Seimens to put in a good bid. Even then, whether or not the Seimens plant stays a "Seimens" plant doesn't matter. Whoever wins could purchase the plant and hire the staff...or build another plant and the laid off Seimens workers could apply there.
