Why are British Gas workers on strike?

This was first published on the Solidarity Federation Facebook page

We are facing massively detrimental changes to our employment contracts including:

• Less time allowance per job (meaning we will have to RUSH in and out of YOUR home to complete the job and hit our output/performance targets)

• Work more hours for less pay (that’s MORE time away from our families for a PAYCUT)

• Less holiday

• Less sick pay

• Extended start and finish times

• No benefit for being available for emergency night shifts

…..And the list goes on and on and on…..

If we don’t agree to the new contract we will be FIRED as of March 31st.

PLEASE SUPPORT THE STRIKE.

Would you be happy to accept these changes? Or be FORCED to accept them because your boss would FIRE you then REHIRE you onto the new contract anyway?

TELL BRITISH GAS YOU SUPPORT THE WORKERS.

WRITE TO THE CEO CHRIS O’SHEA AND TELL HIM YOU SUPPORT THE WORKERS.

TELL BRITISH GAS BOSSES TO WITHDRAW THE THREAT OF FIRE AND REHIRE.

As soon as the threat is removed WE WILL END THE STRIKE.
