Capita staff strike back over pay

Issue No. 2159

Finance workers at the Capita company in Glasgow are set to strike on Friday of this week over pay.

The Unite union members are angry that they have not been granted a decent pay rise despite the company’s 18 percent increase in profits.

Workers received a 1.5 percent pay rise this year, while shareholders were paid a 20 percent dividend.
