For decades, Bell Canada has taken advantage of employees work and loyalty. Most recently, Bell Canada threatened the future of good telco jobs in the complete outsourcing of the new Wireless to the Home program for rural Canadians while laying off technicians for the first time in the company’s history.
Was this a business decision? Was it made to protect Bell’s bottom line? Are Unifor technicians unavailable, or is Bell unable to hire more for this important project? NO.
The company all-but admitted that it was taking this action to punish workers for asserting our rights, blaming poor “labour relations”.
With the launch of this campaign, Bell workers are fighting back.
Here’s a bit of a history, in letters.
Unifor Letter to Bell Canada VP of Labour Relations Reno Vaillancourt, December 12, 2018
Letter to Members on surplus notice and complete outsourcing of Wireless to the Home, April 8, 2019
Letter to all Bell Members on Bell Outsourcing and the need to fight back, April 16, 2019
Our first, united action is on April 23, 2019. Employees at Bell workplaces across the country are using the Bell Real Talk campaign to finally speak openly with one another about the realities of working at Bell Canada and Bell subsidiaries.
Unifor members are taking action to defend the future of good jobs in Canada’s telecommunications sector. Because big players like Bell Canada can’t be allowed to punish workers in the endless pursuit of ever higher profits.
