Madam Speaker, to follow up on that point, it is about bringing as much equality as possible to the negotiating process through the mediation/arbitration process. If the member reads the legislation, she will know that when the arbitrator is appointed, it has to be in consultation with the union. What she will also know is that when it comes to that mediator-arbitrator making any decision, it has to be after having heard the concerns of the union. The corporation cannot just say that it is not coming to the table. Actually, within 90 days, the mediator-arbitrator has to render a decision. If the corporation does not come to the table, the union wins on all counts. Both parties have to present a solution if they want their concerns heard.
To ensure that the union's concerns are heard, subclause 11(3) states:
the mediator-arbitrator is to be guided by the need
(a) to ensure that the health and safety of employees is protected;
(b) to ensure that the employees receive equal pay for work of equal value;
There are a number of other principles. I wonder what the member thinks about that.
