United Kingdom - Finance staff at Capita strike in pay row - September 23, 2009

On 23 and 24 September, the union members at finance company Capita headquarters in Glasgow went on strike in a dispute over a “derisory pay offer”. The Unite union has written to Capita’s clients to make them aware of the breakdown in negotiations between the union and Capita. Rob MacGregor, Unite national officer, said: “Capita staff is being forced by their employer to accept an insulting pay offer while their CEO, Paul Pindar, awards himself a package worth UKP 9.8 million. This hypocrisy by Capita, at a time when the staff in Glasgow are bringing the company good profits, is truly shameful.”
