Capita pay deal error resolved

Successful resolution of Capita pay deal error following decisive CWU intervention

Over a hundred and fifty members across the Capita O2 and Tesco mobile partnerships have had their belated 2022 pay award recalculated after the union flagged up multiple underpayments to individuals who work fewer hours than the standard Capita 37.5 hour per week contracts.
