Telus applies for conciliation after talks with union fail
After the Telecommunication Workers Union halted bargaining and sought a strike mandate from its members, Telus Corp. has asked the federal labour minister for the appointment of a conciliator. The strike vote will be held between Oct. 26 and Nov. 13 at various sites throughout the serving area. The TWU unveiled a billboard last week outside of Telus corporate headquarters, urging the telco to take better care of its workers.
