Openreach coronavirus problems

Openreach seem to be pushing a more aggressive approach to staff.

– Despite an agreement to accommodate engineers to work at home to shield vulnerable people, some managers are blocking this.

– Provision copper order books have been re-opened

– Fibre members are under pressure to enter buildings for provision, rather than stop work at the entrance

– An instruction has been issued to turn the leave year into 2 half years with members required to take half their leave by end September.

Members should stick by existing agreements but can get advice on 020 7322 5000 or
