Alberta labour federation pays $50,000 for violating CRTC telemarketing rules

OTTAWA - The Alberta Federation of Labour has paid $50,000 for violating Canada's telemarketing rules.

It has also agreed to comply in future with the rules of the national Do No Call list.

The list was set up to give consumers a tool for blocking unwanted phone calls from marketers.

The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission says it investigated the labour federation after receiving complaints.

The CRTC says that a company hired by the AFL made calls with an automated device that doesn't comply with the telemarketing rules.

In particular, the robo calls didn't provide a local or toll-free number and mailing address for the AFL.

The Alberta Federation of Labour has 29 union affiliates that represent 160,000 workers in Alberta.
