I would disagree with that. Contractors have a much better safety record than USR’s.
I think they are trying to say they are a safer option in comparison to contractors. I don't know how true that is though.
Still don’t get the name of the thread “Greed over Safety”. I can’t see where this is happening.
Enbridge uses Accenture for billing and call center work. It's just a matter of time before it's aligned . The collective agreement is up this year . They claim no layoffs just waiting for people to retire to get the number of people they want. We are all in this together , company and union members. Remember the union fights for us all! We have rights and enjoy the freedoms we have at work because of the fight of union memebers....in the past and now! Local 975 will see layoffs in November i don't know if they had language to protect them ....also the steel workers union represents a section of the workforce...they didn't have good representation like we did with Unifor. They took the 1st contract without a fight.
if you own stocks you should care. Up over 3% today on the announcements of reductions and layoffs.
Good news. More money in my retirement account
How can outsourcing not result in a lay off? Meter work being outsourced but what about the call centres who book meter work? Will this outsource company be doing everything including calls? LAKESIDE S—S! I knew as soon as merger wasn’t announced Enbridge would outsourced. They don’t care about anyone except shareholders!
It's Unifor, not uniform. Unifor is the union that represents all of Enbridge Gas Distribution's outside workers. I should know as I am one of them
Meter work is being outsourced in January so if we strike there’s not much interruption to the work. Enbridge can outsource as long as it doesn’t result in a lay-off ....
What are uniform members?
Enbridge is replacing uniform members with unspecified workers. No strike is planned but possible with the outsourcing planned. The new workers must be in place before the current contract ends so Enbridge can use the workers if a strike happens.
What are you talking about? Can either poster add some context? Is the OP saying Enbridge will be hiring scab labor because the Union is planning a January 2021 strike? And the $20M savings – how is this being achieved ... because union labor is being cut? I don't understand what this post is about.
The company will probably be happy saving this 10-20 million. The next one will be a status quo contract.
