Bell, Canada’s telecom giant, faces backlash after firing 400 workers in abrupt virtual meetings, deeming them “surplus.” The move, criticised by union Unifor, sparks outrage over transparency and worker well-being.

Despite claims of maintaining transparency, Bell’s actions draw condemnation for favouring shareholders over employees’ rights. The layoffs come after the announcement of cutting 4,800 jobs, prompting debates on corporate responsibility in the telecom industry.

The uproar highlights concerns about Bell’s workforce and governance practices, as unions vow to fight for affected workers’ rights. Meanwhile, Dell also confirms job cuts amid financial challenges, signalling broader industry trends impacting employee livelihoods.
