Otis lifts

Issue No. 1857

SOME 1,000 Otis lift engineers were due to continue their strike action on Friday of this week in a dispute over pay. Otis is the world's largest manufacturer of lifts with businesses in 200 countries. Yet it imposed a 1.7 percent pay deal. Workers, who are in the Amicus union, have rejected a further 2.2 percent offer, which would only be granted by local managers based on individual interviews.
