Delegates to the telecoms section of last week’s CWU conference fired a warning shot at British Telecom (BT), which is looking to attack their pension scheme.

The conference reaffirmed its position that any changes to the scheme must be negotiated with the union.

Jeannie Drake, the CWU’s deputy general secretary (telecoms), told the conference, “Changes to the pensions scheme need to be agreed and a future defined benefits scheme is central to that.

“If BT moves unilaterally on this it will face strike action across Britain.”
