BT was granted an injunction in the High Court Friday to stop a planned series of strikes this month by 14,000 of its field engineers over a performance-related bonus scheme.
The proposed 24-hour strikes on 25 and 28 April by members of the Communication Workers Union (CWU) would disrupt new installations of BT's ADSL broadband services.
CWU members voted nearly two to one in a ballot last month to strike over the Self Motivated Teams (SMT) bonus scheme, which the union believes is "unfair, divisive and open to abuse".
But BT insisted that it was not given enough warning about the strike, and dismissed the unfair claims by suggesting that the scheme is voluntary.
The telco said that it is still willing to talk to the CWU about its members' concerns. The union has refused to do so until BT suspends the SMT scheme.
The CWU told vnunet.com that BT should consider reviewing the pay grading of the field engineers.
"Taking onboard the new skills these engineers have had to learn, such as installing ADSL and sorting out problems, a review of the pay grade is called for," said a representative.
