Manpower Campaign – Close the Gap – Campaign update including Petition & Poster

Further to LTB 492/2017 dated 8 September which informed branches of the intention of the CWU to mount a national campaign on the issue of low pay for our Manpower members working in BT. Please read the latest update.

Campaign Pack

The campaign pack is in the process of being published and will be circulated to branches shortly. An LTB will also be published with all inserts in electronic format.

Campaign Webpage

Please find attached the link to the campaign page which will provide up to date information of the campaign, including video updates. We would like the branch to promote the webpage URL as much as possible, particularly to the membership.

Petition & Poster

The campaign petition is officially launched today and a video is available on the CWU website. Branches should circulate the petition amongst the membership as widely as possible for members to sign. A URL link to the petition is attached and can also be downloaded via the campaign webpage. A campaign poster has been designed and copies will be sent to you to promote the signing of the petition. The poster is also available to download from the website and is attached in pdf format.

In order to generate social media interest, branches are encouraged to use the poster when the branch representatives or members sign the petition and wherever possible to take a picture holding the poster so that this can then be posted on social media using the hashtag #CloseTheGap

All signed petitions should be returned to Head Office addressed to Linda Massey, CWU Head Office, 150 The Broadway, Wimbledon, London, SW19 IRX


The Voice – Campaign feature

Please find attached a pdf version of the latest campaign feature article that can be used to raise awareness and can be circulated amongst the membership.

Any queries should be addressed to Sally Bridge

Yours sincerely,


Sally Bridge

National Officer
