Information picket to greet Toronto Hydro board of directors, protest sale of Toronto Hydro Telecom

    TORONTO, March 4 /CNW Telbec/ - The union representing workers at Toronto
Hydro and its subsidiary, Toronto Hydro Telecom, will hold an information
picket outside the corporation's board of directors meeting tomorrow morning.
    "The people of Toronto own Toronto Hydro, but the appointed board is
moving toward the sale of Telecom without any public consultation or input,"
said Pauline Niles, president of CUPE Local One. "Decisions about this
valuable piece of modern revenue-generating infrastructure are too important
to make behind closed doors."
    Toronto Hydro announced in January that it would seek expressions of
interest from potential buyers for Telecom.
