Why are Capita Staff On Strike

WHY ARE CAPITA STAFF ON STRIKE?

Unite members working at Capita, Bothwell Street are on strike in a dispute over pay.

Their employer, Capita has failed to enter into negotiations with staff representatives since an initial offer of a 1.5% pay rise.

Unite members are angry that despite making massive profits Capita will not give staff a decent pay rise.

Workers feel that they have been left with no alternative but to take strike action.

Capita have no financial excuse not to give their staff a fair pay rise:

• An 18% increase in Capita operating profit – up from £271 million to £320 million;

• A 70% increase in operating profit for the division where Bothwell Street staff
work – up from £33 million to £56 million;

• No bonus for workers but big bonuses in the boardroom.

Staff are angry that their contribution to the 70% increase in divisional profits have not been fairly recognised.
