I must express some surprise at that.
Having said that, I want to tell you a little story. My father was from New Brunswick, and when he came to Upper Canada he was a member of a large union. When the union negotiated, they did not consult with their members; they took a leadership role, which they're certainly entitled to do. When the deal was ultimately done, they gave it to their membership, including my dad, to vote on, and they did whatever they did with that.
You made a comment in your testimony, which was interesting. I'm trying to get a sense of how it works with CUPE. We had Mr. Blair Redlin speak to us when he was in Vancouver, and I thought he gave very interesting testimony.
You mentioned that your membership voted against this deal. Explain to me briefly how that works. Who voted against it?
