Shaw Support

Bargaining dates - May 2, 3, 10 and 11. It’s time for positive movement from management: Last week we told Freedom management that we expect them to get focused on a faster pace of talks. The labour board has told the company to follow the law, so we hope Freedom Mobile will finally provide us with the financial information we need in order to deal with wages and benefits.

Slogan contest!
Members have been suggesting ideas for slogans. So it’s time for a contest to get your ideas too! Here are a few we’ve received: “Where’s The Fairness?” “Making Freedom Bearable” “We Expect More Respect” “We Expect a Fair Contract”

Email rsaini@usw.ca with your ranking for these slogans or add your own slogan idea. If you do, your name will go into the hat for a draw prize of USW swag.
