Bell Craft Bargaining Update #12, 13


Campaign Update

Information Bulletin #13

3/31/2021 -Sisters and Brothers,

Bargaining broke down on Tuesday, March 30th between your bargaining committee and Bell.

Despite the assistance of a federal conciliation officer, the company would not move on the priorities of members. Your union remains committed to reaching a fair collective agreement.

It is clear that progress will not be made until pressure on the employer increases.

Your union will now focus on the immediate need to resolve the essential services issue in front of the Canadian Industrial Relations Board.

Once that issue is resolved, we will organize strike votes in order to bring bargaining to a deadline where we believe meaningful change can take place. In the meantime we will continue to mobilize to build additional solidarity and weight behind your demands.

We thank you for your continued support during bargaining.

In Solidarity,

Your Bargaining Committee



Information Bulletin #12

3/26/2021 -Sisters and Brothers,

Your Bargaining Committee began conciliation with the company this week via Zoom. We reiterated that our priorities must be addressed if we are to reach an agreement and avoid a work stoppage. Conciliation will continue next week and we will put out the next bulletin, when there has been a tangible change in the bargaining process for us to report.

Thank you for your patience and support!

In Solidarity,

Your Bargaining Committee
