Most recently Bell Technical Solutions sent out an email to BTS employees advising employees to review the code of ethics in an electronic format. This newly introduced format included an acknowledgement through an electronic signature agreeing to such documents. At no time should an employee be asked to provide a signature by reading an online document that they may or may not agree to. It is the Local’s position that the company should remove the required signature field.
I suggest any member not wishing to sign the electronic format contact their manager for direction. If directed to provide a signature seek out your union steward or the local executive.
I will be advancing this issue for further clarification and consideration.
