Acting President’s Message: The Local holds Telus accountable for the coding issues

January 22, 2021 - Dear members,

Thank you everyone for exercising patience as I try to work through the Holiday coding issues with Telus (see previous Acting President’s Message here).

They are firm in their position that they made an honest mistake and that they corrected that mistake by applying the language of the collective agreement.

They do not believe harm was caused to anyone.

We do not hold the same view as Telus.

As such, rest assured that we are exploring every avenue available to us to hold them to account. We have already sought a legal opinion on this issue, and I will provide an update in short order.

In Solidarity,

Donna Hokiro, Acting President
USW Local 1944
