United Kingdom -Union recognition stolen from Virgin staff -November 22, 2012

Virgin Media has been accused of ‘stealing’ trade union recognition from its staff following the company's result of a referendum on union recognition. Despite the company giving CWU less than a week's notice on the referendum, and bombarding staff with company messages urging them to vote for derecognition, the supposed result was a very slim 52% to 48% in favour of the company's position. According to a Virgin spokesperson the company will from now on deal with staff forums which have an inclusive voice in the company's decision-making.
