If you think the previous CBA has no bearing on this negotiations we are never going to agree and you will remain wrong IMO.
the previous CBA doesn't exist any more, of course it is irrelevant. there is a reason why contracts have built in clauses stating that it is subject to only the current CBA, you wanna know why? because once it is expired it is - you guessed it- IRRELEVANT.
