Read it again

B: The NC resolves that if forced to choose between the existing
agreement or the revised agreement as written the NC reluctantly
chooses the existing agreement.

9 members of the NC in favor, 6 opposed.

The majority of those voting said that EVEN with ALL of the changes
noted in resolution "a" that they still prefer the existing contract.

Further, Kent's comments are irrelevant.  The only reason it was not a
a majority of all the elected positions was because the conference did
not have all of the elected members there.

The changes that were made did NOT address all of the points the NC
raised, and further the NC said that even if those points were
addressed, it preferred the existing contract anyway.

Best regards,
