Press Release

The Provincial Court of Alberta rejected the Telecommunications Workers Union (the TWU) action to collect union-imposed fines from three TELUS employees who chose to cross picket lines during a 2005 strike. The Court found the TWU “court action” was an attempt “to give the authority of law” to union discipline.
