CAW Rallies for Bell TV Workers

August 24, 2012


The CAW threw their support behind locked out CEP members who work at Bell TV, with nearly 1,000 convention delegates joining in a march and demonstration at the Bell ExpressVu building in downtown Toronto on August 23. The union temporarily adjourned its weeklong convention for delegates to participate. CEP Local 79M members have been locked out by Bell since July 11. CEP has been in negotiations with Bell TV since April 2011. On July 13, the Canada Industrial Relations Board declared the lock out illegal. Bell is demanding wage grid concessions of up to $6,000. CAW President Ken Lewenza called the lock out a “disgrace.”
