A poll of Unite members found that staff have faced increased workloads due to job cuts across the industry. The result has been that staff are forced to work longer hours. Unite is campaigning to end the practice of staff being asked or required to start earlier or work later than their contracted hours. Members informed us that these additional hours were not recognised via overtime payments.
Unpaid work ranges from arriving earlier than your start time and staying later to complete them. All those extra minutes worked each day add to significant unpaid overtime that staff across the financial services industry are losing. Some staff are losing as much as £2,000 a year through not being paid for the work they do.
The Unite campaign is for staff to work their proper hours and no longer be taken advantage of by their employers. Staff deserve to be paid for the work they do. There is no excuse for taking advantage of the hard-working employees across the finance industry.
