Prospect in BT
The Communications, Media & Digital Sector of Prospect negotiates with BT on everything related to your working life, from pay and terms and conditions, to pensions, change in the workplace, career development and equality issues.
The union works with BT at every level, from local reps talking over issues in one building to negotiating teams working at the top level of the company. Working members in BT set our priorities and policies and work with the union's professional negotiators at line of business level and at BT Group. In addition, we represent individuals with problems or who simply need our advice.

Can we start by wishing all members a Happy New Year. 2014 has started with some terrible weather in many parts of the country and this has meant many of you having to work flat out to cope, with Openreach now calling for contractual overtime amongst engineers in some regions to clear the backlog of work.
This will means some OM’s in affected regions may be asked to volunteer to come in on a Saturday for a period. Management have told Prospect arrangements for this will be discussed at a local level. It should be remembered any Saturday attendance is voluntary and if you do attend you should later take TOIL. If you experience any problems with this contact your local rep or the Prospect helpdesk on 020 8971 6060 or firstname.lastname@example.org
This update will cover some of the main topics which Prospect will be dealing with in Openreach in 2014 and also looks at the work of the Prospect Openreach Industrial Relations Committee.
