CAW Reaches New Agreement with MTS Allstream
March 10, 2010, 3:40 PM EST
The CAW has reached a new agreement with MTS Allstream late on March 9, covering approximately 600 workers across the country.
The majority of the workers are employed as technicians or in administrative positions and based in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver and Calgary, with other smaller bases across Canada.
"The bargaining committee is pleased with this agreement as we were able to fight back the many concessions the employer insisted were necessary," said CAW Local 2000 President Dylan Gadwa, representing the members at MTS Allstream.
MTS Allstream is the third largest telecommunications company in the country.
Voting on the new deal will take place over the next two to three weeks. Details of the agreement will be made public upon ratification.
