SOME 1,000 Otis lift engineers, members of Amicus, went on strike on Friday of last week in their continuing dispute over pay. Ken Biggs, the national organiser of the lift section of the union, told Socialist Worker, ‘This is not just about a 1.7 percent pay deal and an extra 2.2 percent only granted by local managers after individual interviews.

‘We can’t accept this. Another lift company has come up with a 4.1 percent pay deal for its workers. Otis, the biggest lift company, has come up with an inferior pay deal. Over the last two years workers have had a very hard time. The strikes have been very good. There is a stewards’ meeting on 10 July where we will decide our next step.’
