Bulletin #4



Bargaining with Bell resumes virtually on June 16 and 17

Your bargaining committee is returning to the negotiating “table” using technology and web meetings after a three-month delay because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

While we have had an unforeseen delay we have not forgotten the issues important to you. In our last bulletin, we noted we spoke to Bell about your concerns on job security and made it clear we needed concrete action to stop the job erosion. That will be our first priority when we resume talks with the Company on Tuesday.

While COVID-19 appears to be declining in Manitoba we still must be cautious and follow health rules set out for us by our Public Health authorities in Manitoba and Unifor. As such, large-in person gatherings continue to not be safe. As bargaining continues, membership engagement or feedback, as well as any voting will also be hosted online or through other technology. More details will come, with plenty of time to prepare, as we get closer to a deal. Rest assured all voting will be secret ballot and confidential.
