BT job losses will devastate 13,000 households – Rebecca Long Bailey

Rebecca Long Bailey MP, Labour’s Shadow Business Secretary, commenting on the latest round of job losses at BT, said:

“This shocking number of job losses will devastate 13,000 households and send shockwaves through the company.

“Only last week BT announced 6,000 job losses and this latest round of cuts raises serious questions over their strategy, about whether these cost-cutting measures are merely about appeasing shareholders for short term considerations.

“The Government must urgently meet with BT and the unions to ensure that there are no further cost-cutting measures that disproportionately impact workers and that those who have lost their jobs are properly supported during this difficult time.”
