TEAM Bargaining Update
Day One 
After each party made their opening statements, proposals were presented and exchanged:
The TEAM bargaining agenda includes the following categories:
·      Team Representational Issues
·      Work/Life Balance
·      Job Protection/Security
·      Career Progression
·      Career Development
·      Early Retirement and Voluntary Severance
·      Remuneration
·      Benefits
·      Letters of Understanding and Policies
Your Bargaining Committee was extremely disappointed with the MTS Allstream bargaining proposal, in that, it failed to address a single issue brought forward by the members.  Many of these issues are long standing and already well known to the company.
TEAM requested a Business Outlook presentation from MTS.
In solidarity
