Workers Union (CWU)
The CWU, under the
banner of, "Remember Your Pensioners, BT!," are
planning to negotiate with BT, for Pensioners to be offered the same
discount, on products and services, as are offered to employees.

This should make you Smile.
A Plan 107 (A Boss/Secretary system) was being
installed and the extension telephone was to be situated alongside another
Telephone. When the job was completed the lady asked for a different colour for the extension telephone. Asked why? She said
"so she could tell
which one was ringing!!" a statement she repeated. The Fitter simply
adjusted the bell coils and all was well. (Comment; Did he mean 'bell gongs?' )
Story taken from a post on Facebook Group GPO Telephones
and Wireless Pensioners Associated Site Launched
BT pensioners site has been further developed to create an Associate Site which I
hope will prove popular with C&W Pensioners. Links between the two
sites will be provided for those with an interest in both companies.
Loose Out in BT Drive to
cut costs.On Wednesday 14 November 2012, I received my usual copy of BT Today
(Pensioner Edition) and it was with some dismay that on page 21. I read
that the Pensioner Edition would cease publication from this issue
onwards, because it can no longer be funded. Does BT really need to make
such meagre savings off the back of itís pensioners?
A Point of View
site is principally to enable PO/BT Pensioners, employees and ex-employees
to re-establish contact with old colleagues.
Photographs Page has
been added to the
site and photographs are urgently required. Men/Women at work, in training
or at leisure could be interesting subjects. Jpeg format preferred. Upgraded

2013/14. My notice of increase arrived 24 April and as expected the
increase was 2.2% based on the September 2012 CPI measure of inflation.
This compares with:
The RPI measure of
inflation of 2.6%
The State Pension Increase for
2013/14 of 2.6%
