Telecommunications Workers Union Ratifies New Collective Agreement with Shaw Cable

The Telecommunications Workers Union, USW National Local 1944, ratified its members for reaching a new collective agreement with Shaw Cable. After six months of bargaining, the union's bargaining committee brought forward a tentative collective agreement to Unit 60 members. The union's Shaw Vancouver members voted 77.6% and the Shaw Surrey members voted 76.7% in favour of ratifying the three-year agreement, which takes effect retroactively from March 24, 2015. The new contract includes 100% paid sick days; annual salary increases of 1.75%, increases to long- and short-term disability insurance; security around scheduling for technical field representatives; a new third-party Internet account code; and a $20 portal code. This was the first round of bargaining for TWU members since they merged with the United Steelworkers, which provided new methods and expertise on bargaining practices. The Unit 60 bargaining committee was effective in engaging members and membership participation in the process was very high.

Rogers Communications Unveils Additional AWS-1 Wireless Spectrum in BC and Alberta

Rogers Communications announced that it has unveiled additional AWS-1 wireless spectrum in British Columbia, or BC, and Alberta.

The activation of this AWS-1 spectrum comes just one month after its purchase from Shaw Communications. This spectrum had sat unused since 2008. With this spectrum, Rogers is doubling the speed that customers can get on AWS LTE network in BC and Alberta. The full spectrum is first being activated in Calgary, Edmonton, Medicine Hat, Kelowna, Prince George, Vancouver and other select communities, with the remainder of the spectrum being activated by mid-2016.

Shaw Communications Inc. Announces Creation of New Data Centre in Calgary

Shaw Communications Inc. announced the creation of a new, state-of-the-art data centre in Calgary to offer business customers a variety of hybrid solutions, including cloud, colocation, managed services or any combination in between. The 40,000 square foot facility is Shaw's first Canadian data centre initiative following its 2014 acquisition of Denver-based ViaWest. The Calgary data centre will open in the fall of 2015. The Calgary data centre leverages ViaWest's expertise and 16-year track record in the IT infrastructure space across the United States, where it operates 28 data centers, and more than 1,500 customers, including Cox Business, Santander, and New Belgium Brewing Company. U.S.-based customers of ViaWest can also leverage the Calgary data centre to meet their Canadian IT hybrid infrastructure needs. Shaw's new Calgary data centre is designed to live up to Shaw's reputation for delivering exceptional customer experiences and solutions. Staffed by a highly trained team of engineers, the centre features physical security monitoring and high resolution video surveillance to provide customers with peace of mind that their information is safe, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Additionally, for businesses that may prefer the choice and diversity of network providers, the Calgary data centre will be carrier-neutral. This will allow businesses to take advantage of Shaw's extensive fiber network, a carrier of their choice, or a combination of both.
