BT – deep concern at scale of job cuts

18 May 2023
Prospect union have responded to the announcement of further large scale job cuts at BT. Prospect represents thousands of managers at BT.

John Ferrett, Prospect National Secretary, said:

“Prospect are deeply concerned by the scale of these cuts. Announcing such a huge reduction in this way will be very unsettling for workers who did so much to keep the country connected during the pandemic.

“As a union we want to see the details behind this announcement in order to understand how it will impact upon members and have demanded an urgent meeting with the Chief Executive.

“We have always opposed compulsory redundancies in BT and has been able to ensure over the years that any reductions have been achieved on a voluntary basis.

“Prospect has a partnership agreement with BT which governs how the company and the union manage change in the organisation.

“We will be ensuring that the partnership agreement is fully adhered to during any consultations with BT over job reductions.”
