Usually, the more people in the room for a negotiation like this, the longer it takes to get a deal done.
Sure, every member of the PA will get an up or down vote on the tentative agreement but I don't think the size of the committee will affect much at all assuming the players are well organized. I've been on a committee of about 15 and we functioned fairly well with elected co-chairs who did 90 percent of the talking. Dissent was hashed out and responses to management proposals were voted on in caucus.
