And what was your reaction?
Ah, well, I, I'm not sure that I can say my reaction was anything more than I was totally numb. Ah, that was the last thing in the world I expected. Ah, I had been meeting monthly with McCoy, as, as part of a group in the union who were trying to work out problems. And, ah, At no time had anybody mentioned that they there was a problem with the service or, or for that matter, with any of the people who were named, or, or certainly the majority of them. I didn't know them all. Ah, but, ah, here was this letter that, ah, ordered me out. Ah, so all I can tell you is I was dumbfounded.**
