BT workers have been fighting for equality for a long time

Many companies look to BT for best practice, well let’s show the world what best practice is, says Quincy Raymond

YOU see a nation that used to be a 9 to 5 workforce now working on unsocial shift patterns, zero-hours contracts and unrealistic working conditions. 

Companies are trying to squeeze the workforce to increase stakeholders’ profits. BT is one of the largest companies in the UK. It prides itself on being from the UK and having UK values. It is becoming the norm that it’s ok to belittle and degrade the workforce, with the view to “just shut up and put up”. Well no, this is not the case. 

Our members and the public have the opportunities now, not just to ensure that BT workers get the respect they deserve, but all workers. Many companies look to BT for best practice, well let’s show the world what best practice is. In simple terms: take care of your workforce.
