MONTREAL, Sept. 7, 2012 /CNW/ - Locked-out Bell TV workers will hold an information picket at the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) hearings into the proposed Bell Canada merger with Astral Media Inc beginning next week.
"In our experience, the bigger Bell Canada gets, the worse it treats its employees," says Barb Dolan, Ontario Administrative Vice-President of the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union (CEP)
"Our members, who have been locked out while trying to obtain a first collective agreement, have a clear message for the CRTC: Along with corporate growth, goes a responsibility to treat workers fairly."
|WHERE: Members of CEP Local 79M will be at the Palais de congrès de Montréal, 1001 place Jean-Paul-Riopelle, Montréal, Quebec|
|WHEN: Beginning at 9am on both Monday and Tuesday, Sept. 10 and 11|
More information on the lock out is available at: www.cep.ca.
