Invitation - Protest against outsourcing in Bell Canada

    MONTREAL, June 15 /CNW Telbec/ - The Canadian Telecommunications
Employees' Association (CTEA) is organizing a demonstration against Bell
Canada's decision of cutting jobs and reducing the work hours of its Canadian
employees in favour of overseas outsourcing companies.

    When :       Saturday June 16 at 5:00 pm

    Where:       In front of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre - 123 Front
                 Street West

    The Indo-Canada Chamber of Commerce is holding a gala event to promote
more growth in trade between India and Canada. "Bell Canada and like minded
companies continue to show disregard for their employees and the communities
within which they operate by sending good jobs overseas to the lowest bidder",
says Brenda Knight, President of the CTEA. "We want to raise public and
government awareness towards the fact that this issue affects not only our
membership, but all Canadian working people."
    On June 6, the speech on the abusive use of outsourcing delivered by
Danny Taurozzi, CTEA Vice-President, before Michael Sabia, President of BCE,
had been applauded by several shareholders.
