Union are paid from a percentage of the salary of their members (before taxes). The more their members are paid, the more they engrossed money and profit. At my bro job; they are paid 3% of his salary. In his case he pay over 30$ a week. That's more than 1500$ a year by workers...
In the case of CP; that make 1497$ a year(@24$ an hour base salary) compared to 1185$ (19$-hour) a year if the new worker base salary pass.

Nope but big fine (as much as 1000$ a day) for the workers and as much as 100 000$ for the union.
