Rallies to fight for Canadian jobs and stands united against outsourcing within Bell Canada

    LONDON, ON, Aug. 21 /CNW Telbec/ - The CTEA is facing increasing pressure
from the sale of Bell Canada, the slashing of retirement benefits and the
company's existing plans to outsource more Canadian jobs. The CTEA understands
that the issues of outsourcing and removal of benefits is a growing problem
that is faced by all working Canadians. We stand in opposition to the
prevailing corporate attitude that endangers livelihood of all Canadians.
    The CTEA will be conducting a day of action by way of a protest march:

    When: Wednesday August 22nd, 2007 from 11:30 am to 3:30 pm

    Where: London at 100 Dundas St.

    The CTEA will be handing out "Keep Jobs in Canada" post cards which will
be used to send a message to our politicians in Ottawa, and help give a voice
to Canadian workers. This is the second day of action that has been held in
London within the past four months to protest the actions of Bell Canada.
