Bell Canada

Current and former telephone operators of Bell Canada, most of them women, have voted 95 percent in favor of a $104 million settlement to end a 14 year-old dispute -- covering the years 1993 to 1999 -- with The Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union of Canada and Bell Canada over pay equity for 4,765 telephone operators. CEP filed its claim for pay equity on behalf of the largely female operators, dining service and house services workers in 1992 with the Canadian Human Rights Commission. The parties agreed to mediation late last year. The 150,000 member CEP is Canada's largest union of telecommunications workers. (Jun-19-06) [CANOE MONEY]
