Unifor Local 34-O is a trade Union representing primarily workers in the Bell Canada Enterprises group of companies with some exceptions in the oil and gas sector.  Because of amalgamations of Locals, etc. over the years we are the stewards of the remnants of the records from the International Typographical Union Local 102. This makes us the "oldest" continuous union local in Ottawa.  ITU Local 102 was formed on June 17, 1867

Local 34-O Member needs your help.

Chris Giles, a 15 year technician at BTS, has terminal cancer.  The company terminated Chris without cause and his termination is pending an arbitration.  A settlement may come about, but in the mean time Chris and his family are without benefits, and without the life insurance policy he had while on the pay roll.  And the bills are piling up.  If you can help, or you would like to know more about Chris' story, please go to the Go Fund Me campaign set up by the wife of another BTS technician, herself a cancer survivor, to try and assist this family through this crisis.

General Meeting Dates

As the local is a composite local comprised of members who work with a variety of different schedule types and in various locations, general meeting dates and times will be alternated, whenever possible, between Wednesday and Sunday evenings when called.  However, if members of a bargaining unit are unable to attend a meeting on a selected date due to scheduling conflicts, but have issues that they want to address collectively, please contact your steward or a member of the exeutive to see if we can arrange a special general meeting for that bargaining unit.
