TELUS and the Telecommunications Workers Union (TWU) have agreed to the terms of a tentative collective agreement, covering approximately 12,100 TELUS employees nationally.

The TWU has confirmed that it will present the tentative agreement to its membership in the coming weeks and recommend their members vote in favour of it.

TELUS and the TWU have agreed to not release further details of the agreement pending finalization of contract language, which is expected to be completed later this week.

“We are pleased with the successful talks we have had in partnership with the TWU. The process of negotiations has been constructive and conducted in a professional manner.” said Darren Entwistle, President and CEO of TELUS. “We believe this is a progressive agreement that effectively balances the needs of our customers, our team members and our investors.”

“We are optimistic our frontline team members will agree and will vote in favour of the contract,” Mr. Entwistle added. “A ratified agreement will enable our team to focus on the continued execution of our strategy, including answering the challenges our industry’s highly competitive market presents.”
