This looks interesting

Unfortunately not too much in the way of funds at moment to invest

Such are the vagaries of the markets that that is not such a bad thing

Money tied up in reliable ? Dividend payers and funds but looks a likely candidate but decisions as to what to liquidate to provide the happenstance are moot

Will likely hold off and hope the markets don t go against me until after Xmas


But good luck to those that persevere. Me I'm much too much of a bear of everything

Quite a deal, but normal service is better than no service.

BT strikes pay deal with unions

By Ray Le Maistre

Nov 28, 2022


BT staff have been taking industrial action since the summer over pay deals

Now the UK operator has agreed a new offer with the main unions

Union members will vote in the next few weeks about whether or not to accept the offer

Following five months of strike action, BT has agreed a new pay deal with the two main unions that represent its employees, Communication Workers Union (CWU) and Prospect, which could see an end to the walkouts and give BT staff a salary increase that reflects the current levels of inflation in the UK. 

The ‘Cost of Living Pay Rise’ will, if all goes to plan, be awarded to about 85% of BT employees (effectively, all but the highest-paid staff). The unions are to run consultative ballots and are recommending that members vote in favour of the offer. 

The outcome of the ballots will be announced in mid-December, and in the case of the CWU would bring an end to the current industrial action if members vote in favour of the deal. BT staff have been striking for improved conditions since the summer. 

According to the CWU, the pay offer would reflect an annual pay rise of anything between just below 10% for some staff and anything up to 15% for some of the lower-paid employees. 

The CWO noted in an announcement to its members: “The CWU Executive Committee has agreed to recommend the deal with the strong view that it is the maximum that can be achieved by negotiation leveraged by your industrial action… Make no mistake, your significant sacrifice in taking strike action, making a stand against BT and objecting to their originally imposed pay rise in April ultimately forced BT back around the negotiating table. Without this, there would be no further pay increase. At best some people on lower pay may have received an imposed one-off cost-of-living payment in December. The case was made, and won, for a consolidated pay rise; consolidation being hugely important as it means it is paid again and again, unlike a one-off payment which does not increase your actual pay.”

BT CEO Philip Jansen, who previously had not been receptive to union calls for improved pay deals, is now keen to start a new chapter in industrial relations, it seems. “This award is based on the principles we have followed throughout this difficult period. It gets help to as many of our colleagues as possible; favours our lower paid colleagues; and gives people the security of a built-in, pensionable increase to their pay,” he noted. “Crucially, it has been worked on in conjunction with the CWU. As I’ve said throughout, whatever our differences, our unions are vital partners. We will now build on this collaboration: We have agreed with both our union partners that we will all lean into the opportunities and challenges the future will bring, specifically our transformation plans and the delivery of the £3bn cost savings by the end of FY25. Ultimately, we all want BT Group to be successful so that we can do the best by our people and customers for years to come.” 

Let’s hope for everyone’s sakes that the offer makes sense for BT’s employees and operators and that all involved can have a merry Christmas.

News of the pay deal comes only weeks after Jansen announced that the operator was looking to increase its cost savings target from £2.5bn to £3bn by the end of fiscal year 2025.

it seems their are different types on this board.

[1] Intelligent unbiased comment
[2] Those with shares that try to see positive news
[3] Those who post nonsense and try to bait others
[4] The pension fund scaremongers closely in league with [3]

The only comments worth reading are [1] I block everyone lese but that doesn't stop the free brigade creating accounts for one off baiters.

Shame his isn't better moderated

babyal: Coincidentally had my landline /wi-fi upgraded by a BT engineer last Wednesday and he reflected a similar view i.e. that a settlement was imminent.

BT and Vodafone are hit by rising costs and debt: £10bn wiped off telecoms giants as investors rattled

By Francesca Washtell, Financial Mail On Sunday

Published: 21:51 GMT, 26 November 2022 | Updated: 21:51 GMT, 26 November 2022


Almost £10billion has been wiped off the value of BT and Vodafone as soaring costs and debt rattled investors. 

Analysts are becoming increasingly sceptical about Britain's two biggest telecoms companies after they reported lacklustre results this month. The pair are sitting on a £65billion debt pile – almost twice their combined value. 

Investment bank Credit Suisse last week downgraded its rating on Vodafone. Activist investor Cevian Capital appears to be giving up on hopes the group can hasten its turnaround efforts – recently slashing its stake in the mobile giant.
