Dear Members, We have uploaded the new Telus 2023-2027 Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA). It is now accessible online. While we were eager to share both the English and French versions simultaneously, please note that the French copy is still undergoing final translation. Rest assured; we will promptly notify you as soon as it becomes available.

USW Local 1944 now has a Digital Union Board! We’ve received feedback from our members that our Union boards need updating on a more consistent basis. As such, your Union Boards Committee has been hard at work cataloguing our current network of boards in an effort to revamp 1944’s presence in the workplace.

As members throughout our Union #RiseUP to show Telus we need an improved Collective Agreement, there’s now a new way to show your solidarity with your coworkers across the country: Sign the #RiseUP Flag!

Every year on April 28, we recognize the National Day of Mourning across Canada. This day is dedicated to remembering and honouring those who have lost their lives, or suffered injury or illness on the job. This year it hits especially close to our Local. It will have been 16 days since we lost our Brother Keith Murphy to a fatal workplace accident.
