Just this past week, representatives from COPE Local 131 met with Union leadership from IBEW local 2228, and COPE locals 378 and 574 as part of our ongoing National Joint Unions Council representing YPG sales employees. The meetings were held in Calgary and graciously organized by our colleagues from IBEW who represent Yellow Pages employees in Alberta. Our thanks to them for hosting and organizing the meetings, as it can be quite challenging trying to coordinate with everyone across the country.
The council continued it’s commitment to review and discuss issues of common interest to our membership, and discussed strategies and concerns regarding upcoming collective bargaining which will involve all our our membership across the country over the next 12-18 months.
Your unions as always are committed to co-operating through the council to achieve fair and reasonable collective agreements for all our YP members.
