Telus, Telecom Workers agree to binding arbitration
Telus Corp. and the Telecommunications Workers Union (TWU) have agreed to enter into binding arbitration to attempt to settle their stalled contract talks. The move follows a decision from the Canadian Industrial Relations Board that said the telco violated the labour code. The two sides have been negotiating for three years. The union’s membership recently voted 86.3% in favour of giving the union a strike mandate. Telus recently won an injunction from the B.C. Supreme Court forcing the TWU to stop showing ads on the telco’s quality of service. The union ads used many of the same types of animals that Telus features in its advertising.
