We would like to know your thoughts on this matter and have added a new poll so let us know your opinion by casting your vote.

It has recently been reported that BT workers may go on strike over a pay dispute as reported on the Communication Workers Union website (http://www.cwu.org/bt-pay-campaign-2010.html). We would like to know your thoughts on this matter and have added a new poll to find out. UPDATED: 12pm 11th June 2010 Whilst we presumed this topic would be of significant interest to many of our readers, we didn’t expect the immense response it received. In the first three days of the poll going live we received a total of 123 votes, 94% of which stated that they support the strike and believe 2% to be a disgraceful offer. Only 6% of voters thought the 2% offer was reasonable. Most interestingly of all, when analysing the origination of the voters we noticed a significant proportion were using BT based IP addresses, leading us to speculate that many of our respondents may well be disgruntled BT employees. This wholeheartedly supports the findings of the CWU’s own polls and research and leads us to believe that we may be seeing strike action in the near future.
