Massive strike at BT could be on the cards

The Communication Workers Union (CWU) is moving to strike ballot as BT fails to improve its 2% pay offer.

Staff and the union are unhappy that the CEO gets an almost 80% pay rise while they are offered 2%.

Ian Livingston CEO – received a basic salary of £850k plus annual bonus of £1,206k. This was up by 79% on 2009. He is also set to get a 6%% this year, but has pledged to take a 2% pay rise and donate the rest charity.

A strike, which could include over 50,000 people, would cause major problems for businesses that rely on BT services.
