Strike Mandate Vote Meeting Registration

 Hello Members,

As mentioned in Bargaining Update #17, your Bargaining Committee is holding Strike Mandate Vote meetings to be able to clearly show Telus that we are not backing down.

 You will receive several Zoom registration links via email today (Thursday), providing multiple meeting time options. You are to register for only one of these meetings, whichever is most convenient for you. If you register for one meeting, you will be ineligible to register for the others.

Once you register, the Union office will determine your eligibility to vote and will approve your registration. Approval may not occur immediately but should occur within 24 hours.

Upon approval, Zoom will send you your secure, individualized meeting link, which can only be used to access your Mandate Meeting on one device (so it cannot be shared). Also, note that the Zoom link could be sent to your junk folder, so be sure to check there as well.

All attendees at the Strike Mandate Meetings will therefore be eligible voters, and electronic balloting will occur through Zoom during the meeting when the Strike Mandate Vote question will appear on your screen.

You will receive only the registration options for your own membership Group, but for your information, this is the complete Strike Mandate Vote meeting schedule:
