Hello Members, On November 29, USW Local 1944 was in Ottawa to push for support for Canadian telecommunications jobs - including tying the $20 billion in government telecommunications contracts to Canadian jobs and bringing in federal anti-scab legislation now to ban the use of scabs in labour disputes.

Hello members, Our members are currently facing an incomprehensible failure in the new Telus payroll system, causing severe consequences for all of us across the country. This has been an eight-week nightmare that mirrors the infamous "Phoenix 2.0" debacle.

Dear Members, Once again, Telus payroll problems persist with no end in sight—a glaring testament to their ongoing cost-cutting policies or overall poor planning. Our Union is tirelessly fighting to untangle the mess and ensure every member's issues are not just acknowledged but fully rectified.

Dear Members, 

Yesterday, the federal government introduced anti-scab legislation that prohibits the use of replacement workers in both lockouts and strikes for federally-regulated workplaces. This is a monumental win for our cause and a win that will establish fairness at the bargaining table. 

Once again this year, the Alberta Federation of Labour (AFL), in collaboration with the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC), will host students from across Alberta at their Winter School. The event is set to take place at the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge from January 7 to 12, 2024.
