Branch Annual Meeting speakers

The branch annual meeting is on Wed 20th March at St Botolphs Bishopsgate (next to Liverpool St station, central London) Starts 6.15pm. We have a speaker from the GMB union (Nadine Houghton) and have invited Angela Rayner MP. We do not know if she can come due to the unpredictable nature of parliamentary business! Annual reports are available to question officers as usual.

Openreach travel time campaign

The CWU has launched a campaign to bring openreach engineers fully into the protection of the European Working Time Directive and to eliminate ‘Personal Travel Time’. The effect of current arrangements is to push people to work unpaid for longer and longer hours. The union wants this contractual obligation removed from existing and future contracts. Petitions and other campaign material are available from http://www.cwu.org/campaign-pack-our-hours/

Comcast changes will affect Sky

The takeover of Sky by Comcast is sure to mean changes but details so far are only rumours. Comcast will need a return on their enormous investment, where they outbid Fox/Disney. Staff will need union support as change comes.
