Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

The Communication Workers Union (CWU) is stepping up the pressure on T-Mobile UK accusing the mobile operator of making it harder for employees to earn sales bonuses.

The union reports that staff working in T-Mobile shops have had their sales targets raised making it even harder for workers to earn their "well-deserved bonus".

Elsewhere, the CWU - which is not recognised by T-Mobile - claims the mobile outfit has refused to discuss the 800 job losses announced last month. The union has also alleged that T-Mobile has used "heavy-handed security" to prevent union officials from handing out leaflets to workers.

In an outspoken attack CWU organiser Nick Childs said: "As usual it will be the ordinary hard working members and their families who'll suffer from these cuts not the senior executives who will be given golden goodbyes and who'll move on to high paid jobs elsewhere. For many of our members it will be hard to find alternative work."

No one at T-Mobile was available for comment at the time of writing. ®
