The union and the employer will not be able to meet on the week of August 15-18. This delay was forced by schedule misalignment between the parties.
Your bargaining team will instead engage with the company, along with the assistance of a federal conciliator, in Halifax, Nova Scotia beginning on Tuesday, September 6, 2022.
The Bell ACL unit is still in its conciliation period. Your bargaining committee has not yet received a tentative agreement.
Our time in Toronto with the Bell Clerical unit helped move our negotiations along quickly, in a strong, united manner.
In the weeks to come, your Local Unions will need to hear about your support, and will ask for you to participate in mobilization. We hope to see members out at Labour Day events across the region before we head into this last stretch of conciliation.
Once the conciliation period closes on September 11, the unit will enter into a 21 day cooling off period before we enter a strike/lockout position.
