    Unions turn up heat on Telus - By Paul Marck, Edmonton Journal
    In a rally at downtown Telus Plaza Wednesday, Alberta Federation of Labour president Gil McGowan said 29 Alberta unions are meeting this week to come up with a plan to put pressure on Telus and support their striking and locked-out colleagues in the TWU.

    'They're taking on the entire Alberta labour movement,' McGowan told a cheering, boisterous crowd of about 350 pickets on the seventh day of the dispute.
