Bell technicians turn down contract offer

MONTREAL, March 17 2008 -- Bell Canada was advised today that Craft and Services employees represented by the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers' Union of Canada (CEP) have voted to reject the company's final and global contract offer.

Bell is disappointed that its offer was turned down, and the company will be evaluating next possible steps over the coming days. At this time, Bell is ready to enact contingency plans, if need be, to ensure customer service remains the company's top priority. "Since the start of bargaining in October 2007, Bell's fundamental goal has been to reach an agreement that benefits customers, employees and the company, and avoids a work disruption," said Patrick Pichette, President, Operations.

First presented to the union on January 31, the proposed four-year contract included annual wage increases and preserved pension, benefits and job security. It also included changes to the previous collective agreement to reflect changing customer expectations. Bell's CEP-represented Craft and Service employees are technicians who mainly serve business customers in major urban centres of Ontario and Québec
Don't know what kind of effect this would have for most people but I post in case your business is thinking about getting some work done by Bell!
