Unifor Collective Agreements Manitoba

The Winnipeg Free Press asked Local 191 to negotiate a new collective agreement that would come into effect on July 1, 2021 and end on June 30, 2023. This PR proposal for insiders and carriers is essentially an extension of existing agreements, which expire on June 30, 2021.

The check is in addition to the $6600 Unifor Aboriginal in Manitoba have already donated to Harvest We disappeared this week for a few minor issues and has made progress through most non-monetary issues. We had the opportunity to discuss with Bell your concerns about job security and made it clear that we needed something concrete to stop the erosion of jobs. While we had some constructive discussions, the discussions were interrupted because Bell could not get a timely response. We await that response when we return to the negotiations on March 24.

Negotiations with BellMTS resumed on March 10. As we are dealing with Bell, we have NOT had an appointment within three days. The last day was cancelled because Bell could not get a response from your committee. Your negotiating committee saw it first-hand this week, when the negotiations were suspended prematurely until we met at the next scheduled date for the negotiations, March 10. The company could not respond to your suggestions and concerns until Bell had the opportunity to verify them. “This is a sad day for workers, many of whom have worked at the plant for decades,” said Jill Wilson, President of Unifor Local 191. “Obviously, their loyalty was not returned by Transcontinental.” “It`s devastating – I mean, I can`t stress it enough. It`s pretty serious with people dealing with the anxiety and health risks of COVID-19, and now they have to deal with the loss of jobs at the end of the year,” said John Webster, Representative of Unifor Local 191 Bargaining with Bell, which resumes virtually June 16 and 17: to contact your UNION REP, go directly to uniFOR`s Unifor website, Canada`s largest private sector union and represents 315,000 workers in all major sectors of the economy. The union defends all workers and their rights, fights for equality and social justice in Canada and abroad, and aspires to progressive change for a better future. This is a completely different set of negotiations for Unifor Local 7.
