Connect wins recognition in Vodafone

Great news about the Vodafone recognition campaign

Yesterday the Central Arbitration Committee awarded union recognition in Vodafone to Connect

From now on, Connect will be the union negotiating pay, hours and holidays for employees in Vodafone Regional Operations North. Connect has also made an application for recognition in Regional Operations South, at the request of members there, and we hope to be able to report a further success there in a few month’s time.

This is a major breakthrough for Connect – achieving recognition in a Company which has never before dealt with trade unions in the UK. And it’s significant also for the whole trade union movement – union recognition in part of a large, high profile company like Vodafone indirectly benefits union members everywhere.

Congratulations to all the offices and members in Vodafone for the hard work in this campaign from all connect south.
