Further to the recent announcement regarding BT and Openreach strike action, we can confirm that strikes will be taking place on:

  • Monday 10th October
  • Thursday 20th October
  • Monday 24th October

It is expected that 40,000 BT Group workers will strike with the action in October to include 400 workers employed as 999 emergency call handlers. BT have said it would “do whatever it takes to protect 999 services” by moving staff to cover emergency calls, and that they are “redeploying our people to the most important priority is as normal of BT operations.”

As per the previous strikes, BT and Openreach have said that they will endeavour to reduce the impact of the action, by postponing all non-essential engineering works or software updates.

They will put in place any possible measures to minimise disruption to customers. Any appointments that are affected will be rescheduled to after the last day of strike action. We will continue to monitor the situation and communicate any further updates when they occur.
