January 21, 2019 – Bulletin 6 – DEAL SIGNED!

Sisters and brothers,

On the evening of January 18th, the Bargaining Committee signed an agreement with Bell Canada for the renewal of the Collective Agreement for Sales.

We negotiated for several weeks starting last year for this round of bargaining with Bell Canada.

The Bargaining Committee fully recommends this agreement and feels it is the best possible deal that we could have got for our members, it is a huge step forward for everyone.

Over the next few weeks we will be holding meetings for the members and this will be communicated to you. It is very important to get good participation and to be fully informed when you vote.

At these meetings the draft Collective Agreement will be unveiled in full.
We thank you for your continued support and we look forward to meeting you at the upcoming membership meetings.

Your participation is quite important.

In Solidarity,

Your Bargaining Committee:

  • Sonny Malhotra, Ontario Representative
  • Fazal Vankalwala, Ontario Representative
  • Kato Nsangwa Mumba, Quebec Representative
  • Carlos Dion, Quebec Representative
  • Louise Giguère, Quebec National Office
  • Robin Dudley, Ontario National Office

January 14, 2019 – Bulletin 6

Good day Bell Sales Members

Your committee met again this past week in Toronto with Bell as we progress through this round of bargaining.

We continue to push forward with our agenda and will be meeting again from Tuesday Jan 15, 2019 to Friday January 18, 2019 and are hoping to conclude by then. This is not a guarantee but we are positioning ourselves to be done then.

This week we had our National President Jerry Dias stop by as well as Jerry’s assistant brother Chris MacDonald and John Caluori, Assistant to the Quebec Director.

It was an intense week and we continue to work towards getting an agreement that will be fair and equitable to all.

Please keep an eye on your bulletin boards for information as we commit to keeping everyone posted.
