Just as one union is attempting to organize low level managers at Bell Canada, workers at another telco are being asked to forfeit their guild membership. The Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union of Canada (CEP) is seeking to represent tier D and C managers at the country’s largest telco. The move came about last fall when the Association of Telephone Management Employees (ATME) found a majority of its 8,500 workers wanted to join a union. ATME contacted CEP, which began its campaign on Oct. 1. It has six months to complete the drive.
