‘Fire and rehire’ scheme criticsed by union for resulting in ‘mass sackings’
The GMB said strike action will continue, with the 43rd day of industrial action this year taking place on Wednesday.
Hundreds of British Gas engineers were sacked on Wednesday following a bitter row over pay and conditions that has cast a shadow over chief executive Chris O'Shea's first year in office. Workers faced a noon deadline to agree to new terms involving longer hours and weekend work or be dismissed. Despite some last-minute acceptances, almost 500 engineers are understood to have lost their jobs at Britain's largest energy supplier. Photos posted by GMB Union on Twitter showed vans being collected from engineers across the country.
