    So, does this mean there will be rotating service outages?

    Watch the network crumble as the workers go on strike.... At least its not as bad as the company in Milton, where the workers locked themselves in the company building until they got what the bargained for. Or the YorkU strike that held many people from going in and out of the grounds including essential services.

    But hey that's what they have agencies for, right? To pick up the pace for the lack or shortage of employees.
    I will never buy an HTC ever again! (two broke within 4 years, which were well taken care of)

    Learn about price collusion, https://www.reddit.com/r/canada/comm...n_of_canadian/ Canada has the highest utility rates in the G7 countries. Say no to price collusion, be informed of the CCTS, Industry Canada and the CRTC. The working class needs affordability in today's society.

    Just business as usual in Canada, Shaw Cable Co. doing their part, as are Robellus and company:

    “The company has now taken to threatening our members with a lockout. Freedom’s final offer is a substandard agreement and our members deserve better. It’s unacceptable that Freedom Mobile, a company owned by Shaw Cable Systems that is making millions in profit, would take measures to harm their employees.”

    it could be used to legitimately buy a share of the profit by buying shares of the company instead of the entitlement LOL

    *UPDATE*

    "Many of Freedom’s Windsor bargaining unit employees earn wages that are near the poverty line. At the same time, Shaw’s corporate executives are well-known for their lavish compensation packages."

    They finally admitted its about money. However I heard there's no firearm pointed at any staff forcing them to stay with the company.

    Look up the GMD (EMD Canada) closure in London, Ontario in I believe 2010 or 2011. That's what you call "Industrial rape". When Caterpillar threatened to close the plant down, that made national headlines. That is one major reason a "right-to-work" law will never get past any kind of reading. You bring this up (EMD Closure) in the House Of Commons and the bill would be dead. I had a couple of friends work there. They work somewhere else, but don't make the same amount of money they made there, especially with the skill set they have. It was also part of the reason Stephen Harper wasn't re-elected.

    EMD Locomotives are now built in Muncie, IN. Indiana has a "right-to-work" law.
