"It's not often that we actually get the side of the public. We've done what we can to make people understand," said CUPE B.C. president Barry O'Neill, adding that he "didn't put much faith" in the poll's findings.
The poll also showed that only 20 per cent of respondents say the strike has affected them a great deal, with 38 per cent saying it has affected them very little or not at all.
