10 Years of job erosion
The following is quoted from an email addressing the blog post in the link, it comes from the Unifor National
Check out the new Bell Real Talk blog that details a decade of erosion in Bell bargaining units.
"Over the past 10 years, Bell has slashed the number of unionized employees in nearly every unit. This is not a well-kept secret, with Bell employees witnessing the job erosion through various tactics. Erosion continues despite all bargaining committees trying to address this at the bargaining table.
Where did the jobs go? Bell has automated some, and sent others overseas or to domestic contractors.
The only job growth in the last 10 years has been in the Bell Technical Solutions (BTS) group. A company that was founded to contract out technical work for lower pay.
Unifor has fought to defend members in BTS and raise standards for them. Now, even this prosperous unit has been passed over for the next major project Bell is in the process of launching."
