BT has thrown down the gauntlet to its workers' CWU union. BT completed its termination of the contracts of 279 London engineering workers last week. BT plans to close its FirstCall division next March, where over 1,000 permanent BT staff have been redeployed after cuts elsewhere in the company.
Union leaders in the CWU called a lobby over the attacks last week, with around 30 people attending. Much more is needed if the company is not to get away with being able to sack people at will.
