Re:        Collective Bargaining News


After a marathon 22 hour bargaining session that started on the morning of February 22, 2008, we are pleased to be able to announce that a tentative Collective Agreement between TEAM-IFPTE Local 161 and MTS Allstream Inc. was reached at 6 AM Saturday morning, and will be presented to the members for a vote as soon as arrangements can be made.  It is being unanimously recommended.
