At the end of 2021, our team comprised 49,7811 members, a decrease of 9232 from the end of 2020. This was due to natural attrition, retirements and workforce reductions, which were partly offset by call centre hiring.
The positive engagement of members of our team represented by unions is contingent on negotiating collective agreements that deliver competitive labour conditions and uninterrupted service, both of which are critical to achieving our business objectives.
