Support CWU BT picket Lines 29 July and 1 August 

CWU strike
Spread the love

Over 40,000 BT Group workers will hold a two-day national strike against real-terms pay cuts, with senior management accused by CWU general secretary Dave Ward as having “stuck two fingers up” to key workers…

The announcement followed a strike ballot, in which Openreach engineers voted for action by 95.8 per cent and members in BT returned a 91.5 per cent majority for the walkout. The dispute centres on workers opposing the imposition by the business of a far-below-inflation, flat-rate, £1,500pa pay settlement on employees, which is a dramatic real-terms pay cut when compared to RPI inflation levels of over 11 per cent.

It is also in the context of BT making £1.3 billion in annual profit, with CEO Philip Jansen gaining a £3.5 million pay package – a 32 per cent wage increase – while the Big Issue and the BBC have reported instances of BT offices establishing food banks to assist employees.

Please see below for a list of picket lines. Please lend your solidarity and support to the branches on strike by attending the picket lines where possible and sending messages of solidarity.
