Bell, Entourage workers, settle

OTTAWA – Bell Canada and its technical and maintenance workers today announced a tentative agreement has been reached in their months-old strike. "The company and the union have reached a tentative agreement on July 10 which could end the dispute. The tentative agreement will be taken to the membership for a vote. That process could take 10 days. The union will have no further comment or release any details until after the voting process,” said Bob Huget, CEP administrative vice-president in a statement. The 1,400 CEP members at Bell Subco (Entourage Technology) have been on strike since March 24, 2005.
