Telus Bargaining Updates

As the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation approaches, your Bargaining Team is working hard to negotiate its inclusion and others into our Collective Agreement.

Telus has heard the Union’s proposals and said they understand the Union's position. However, the Company has shown little movement and instead continues to push their contrary and divisive concessionary proposals, seeking reductions to pensions, benefits, and threatening job uncertainty.

Telus has recently offered Voluntary Severance Packages and Early Retirement Incentives to our members in FFH Loyalty and Retention, as well as Technical Support.

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.

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. 

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.
