Monday 1st August – BT Strike – Day 2, saw another massively supported action by, not only Our Members, but the General Public, Local Labour Party Leaders, Trades Councils, Unite and Unison.
Monday 1st August – Strike Day Two
I am writing on behalf of Wycombe Labour to express our solidarity and support for the strike action being taken by over 40,000 BT Group workers this Friday 29 July and Monday 1 August. It is very concerning to see yet another group of loyal and hardworking key workers we all depended on during the pandemic being treated with total disdain; in this case by an employer making £1.3 bn in annual profit and awarding its CEO with a £3.5 m pay package – a 32 percent increase. Shameful! The strike ballot results were impressive and show the determination of your members to stand up for a well deserved, fair pay award. We wish them every success. Several of our members would like to express their support in person on strike days. I’ll try to keep an eye on social media for information on places and times of picket lines but would be grateful, if you get a moment, if you could let me know any details you have.Linda Johnson. TULO, Wycombe Labour
