Mr. Speaker, they cannot have it both ways.
My friend said there is no difference between the government's approach today and the Conservatives' approach in 2011. In 2011, the Conservative government imposed specific contractual terms. The Conservative government did not allow any input on the arbitrator, and the way the arbitration was set up was a winner-takes-all approach.
All of that is dealt with differently in this legislation. Specifically, I would ask the member what he thinks about subclause 11(3), which reads:
In rendering a decision or selecting a final offer under paragraph (1)(b), the mediator-arbitrator is to be guided by the need
(a) to ensure that the health and safety of the employees is protected;
(b) to ensure that the employees receive equal pay for work of equal value
(c) to ensure the fair treatment of temporary or part-time employees...
What does the member think about that?
