Talks Begin Towards First Agreement At Freedom Mobile In Windsor

Negotiations on a first agreement begin tomorrow (Wed. Mar. 22) between the United Steelworkers and Freedom Mobile in Windsor.

Over 185 customer care employees at Freedom Mobile's Windsor call centre became USW members after voting in January to join a union.

In the last few weeks, employees have filled out a survey on their priorities heading into talks.

A number of dates have been set aside for talks in March and April.

USW National Director Ken Neumann says as Freedom Mobile grows and expands, its employees deserve a fair share in the success they help to create.

Freedom Mobile, previously known as Wind Mobile, was bought in 2015 by Shaw Communications for $1.6-billion.
