In April an election was held to select two members to the Bell Aliant bargaining committee. The two members who were chosen were Ray Kolody and Josephine Reaume.
Members submitted over 100 bargaining proposals covering a wide variety of topics from AIP and benefits to vacations and wage parity . The bargaining committee began meetings June 19th to decide which of these issues will be brought forward in the book of demands to be presented to the company. This book of demands will also be shared with the Aliant membership at the commencement of negotiations.
Once formal bargaining talks begin September 23rd in Montreal, weekly updates will be issued by the bargaining committee and will be posted on this web site as well as emailed to all Aliant members with an email address not on the Bell network.
