Re: Bell Sales breakthrough to #EndStackedRanking
Today, after extensive campaigning, member mobilization, a CRTC submission, an employee survey and hundreds of grievances, our Unifor Bell Sales bargaining committee is introducing language for ratification that eliminates the stacked ranking system of performance management.
The company has committed to the creation of a new predictable, individual merit-based system without the use of stacked ranking. As a result, members will no longer be pitted against one another for the purpose of determining who is placed on coaching for success.
Further to this development, the company has committed to discussions with Unifor on the use of stacked ranking in other Bell units in the coming weeks. Bell Canada appears to be open to making significant changes to address this very pressing issue for our members across many bargaining units.
