Welcome to Unifor Local 6007

Bell Let’s Talk – A Letter to Bell Human Resources

“For Bell Let’s Talk Day this year, Unifor asks that the company turn its attention inside, and commit to better resourcing mental health research and data as a first step towards promoting better workplace culture and mental health.”

“The impact of mental illness on the job security and quality of so many Canadian worker’s lives cannot be addressed through advertising campaigns.”

“Unifor has a critical concern that all members have access to workplaces which sustain psychologically healthy and safe working conditions. We ask that your company takes immediate steps to ensure this interest is realised.”
