Stop Bill C-27 - Telecommunications - Dec 20, 2016

To all Unifor Locals in the Telecommunications Industry

Sisters and Brothers,

With the Holiday Season just around the corner, I am sure many of you are focusing on the upcoming time with family, friends and loved ones.  I am writing to all Telecommunications Locals and their members because we need your support now, to put pressure on the Federal Government, prior to this holiday season, to Stop Bill C-27 and join all of Unifor in a letter campaign, so the Federal Government gets an onslaught of letters prior to the Holidays.

This bill could undermine future rounds of bargaining within our sector and shift liabilities of funding defined benefits plans from our employer to our retirees and active members.  We cannot allow Bill C-27 to progress any further.  The timing is critical, so please go to and email Finance Minister, Bill Morneau to request that he withdraw this legislation.  This will only take a few minutes of each individual's day, but collectively the impact will be significant. 

In Solidarity, Tyson Siddall  Unifor Director of Telecommunication Industry
