Telus Filtering Pro-Union Website
Days after half its employees walk...
As reported by the CBC
and in our forums
, western Canadian telco Telus
has decided to block a pro-union website
from all of its internet subscribers. Telus argues the website is displaying photographs of employees crossing picket-lines that could violate their privacy, and encouraging strikers to engage in disruptive practices such as jamming phone lines with needless calls. This blockade has not deterred Telus subscribers from using proxies to get around it, and one customer says he is cancelling his service
as a result.
