Telus Bargaining Updates

May 14, 2021 - Your Bargaining Committee continues to meet to review language, build proposals and do the work necessary prior to negotiations with Telus. We had a very successful last few days.

We had District 6 Director Marty Warren stop by to pledge his support. We have recently learned that Canadian National Director Ken Neumann, after a long and successful career with the Steelworkers, will be retiring. Brother Warren has thrown his hat into the ring in the hopes of being elected to succeed Brother Neumann.

March 29, 2021 - Your Bargaining Committee has met again to review the language and the issues that matter most to you and your families as expressed in your responses to the bargaining survey. In addition, the Bargaining Committee is reviewing all provisions of the Collective Agreement as we continue to build proposals and ultimately a comprehensive package that brings your voice to the table. 

Your participation and support in this round of bargaining will be paramount to our success.

January 25, 2021 - The Local’s Bargaining Committee representing members at Telus met by Zoom last week. We reviewed the many Bargaining Survey responses that you, the members, submitted. The results laid bare the many struggles and challenges you face in your work, and the large gap between the efforts you put in to your job versus how you are treated and compensated by Telus. Your responses have helped us to identify our top priorities for bargaining, and also some of the strategies that we intend to use to achieve these priorities. Thank you.
