So Hilda Smith, you are saying the workers are getting poor representation because the union is asking to be on par with the rest of Canada? They may not recoup their losses but they are ensuring that these environmental bandits and human rights abusers will pay what they are supposed to in the future. People like you are the reason that Newfoundlanders and Labradorians have to settle for less, because if someone stands up and says I won't do it for that amount, someone like you stands up and says I will do it for less. We need to work together in this province to improve things, not against. If you love Vale so much why don't you move to Brazil.

Binding arbitration is not the preferred option for any government. You can't expect them to adopt a policy of "do as I say, not as I do". If I control the purse strings, I'll be reluctant to put my money in the hands of an independent arbitrator. It's like rolling stacked dice. Negotiate folks with solid arguments and experienced, professional negotiators at the table.

Is this union for real!!! If I was a member of this union I would be shaking my head. I don't think it's members are being well represented. These poor people are like cattle led to slaughter by the union. They will never recover what they have lost.
