Another Way to have a Real Talk About Bell

In the next few weeks, your stewards will be approaching you to fill out a I Pledge to Fight card. It's one way for you to join other telecom workers across Canada who are standing up against a corporate giant. The Goals of this campaign are to eliminate Stacked Ranking, stop job erosion and outsourcing and build supportive workplaces. We are saying enough is enough so please let's push back. Another way to participate is to register at www.bellrealtalk.ca to volunteer for future events or share your story.

Unifor Local 7 Bargaining Committee Named

The people who will be negotiating on your behalf during the upcoming contract talks with Bell MTS have been chosen. They are Jackie Prynne, Laura Stranieri, Marc Thaczuk, Shawn Scott, and Pam McKinnon.

Banked Overtime Issue Being Reviewed

There was an issue with banked overtime calculations for Unifor members under the old ESS payroll system previous to January 1 of this year. The company is currently looking into this situation and will advise the union once the process is completed - and of course we'll keep our members posted on the outcome.
