    What does it mean?

    Hello,

    What does the following sentence mean?

    The unions invite us to commit commercial suicide.

    What does "invite" mean in that context?
    What's the meaning of "commit commercial suicide?


    Thanks in advance for help,
    Dany

    Here, I'd say 'invite' means 'ask', the unions want the managemnt to do something that would have a very negative impact on the business, which is what 'commit commercial suicide means'.

    You're welcome. Maybe they want a large pay increase, which would make the company's products very uncompetitive.
