THE Communication Workers Union (CWU) telecom executive is calling on BT workers to accept the latest offer over London weighting. But many members are angry at the call. The offer is for a £200 increase now and a further £25 next year.

This led to an angry meeting of London CWU members in BT last week. Union members expressed outrage at BT's insulting offer, but there was also outright condemnation from many speakers who were critical of union negotiators for recommending the offer. The London branches are jointly recommending rejection of the offer.
