    There were also some interesting poll results released by the union which commissioned a private company to poll bargaining unit members...

    More than half of those polled are satisfied with their job and expect to be working for TELUS a year from now.

    More than half of those polled understand TELUS' need for downsizing and expect TELUS to emerge from the telecom industry collapse as an industry leader.

    Support for senior leadership is slightly down from previous polling conducted by the company. Previously it was around 80% support if I remember correctly.

    57% of those polled believe the company is heading in the wrong direction while just over a quarter thought it was on the right track.

    59% of those polled say service levels have decreased compared with two years ago, 71% expect it to get worse, but just 31% think TELUS service will be any worse than other telecom companies.

    75% of those polled have favourable perceptions of how team members treat each other and cooperate and recognize one another.

    A majority of those polled understand how job performance is evaluated and understand their contribution to realizing the company's objectives.

    57% of those polled say they look forward to coming to work each day, compared witha third who don't.

    "Many employees have good feelings about their job and work environment" the union said.

    The TWU reported that 62% rated moral as poor and two in five think it will get worse in the future.

    This information was from an article in the vancouver sun on friday Nov. 1 and was also distributed to investors.

    Now keep in mind that this poll was of union workers who are mostly in the west and most employed in the western wireline division of TELUS. I can personally attest that there is an overwhelming amount of union propoganda going around to make employees think service has decreased, to make them think all their jobs are going to be cut, and to make them think management is incompetent. These are employees who used to be THE company, when wireline used to be THE business that mattered. However, now these employees are seeing new investmentsgoing to wireless, data/IP, and eastern wireline. When viewed in that light these polling results are very very positive for the company.

    This goes to show the difference between working in a union shop and a non-union shop. When you're in a union you have people running around trying to convince everyone the company is bad so you'll give them a stirke vote so they can ask for more stuff.

    When you're in a non-union shop you've always got people running around telling you how good the company is and trying to keep you happy.

    Like night and day!
