AGM Demo 2023 Update!
Protest at Lloyds AGM over management attack on vulnerable staff
New scheme disproportionally impacts women, carers and the disabled working at Lloyds Banking Group.
Staff from Lloyds Banking Group will stage a protest (Thursday 18 May) outside the bank’s AGM in Glasgow. This is in response to a management attack on the working conditions of its most vulnerable staff.
The bank currently operates compressed working arrangements for staff. The compressed hours scheme at present supports staff with caring responsibilities by enabling them to work flexibly.
However, in April Lloyds Banking Group introduced a pilot scheme in some business areas involving 4,000 workers which prevents staff working these
agreed flexible work patterns.
Unite has branded the management “out of touch” and is demanding that the bank withdraws the pilot scheme immediately. The protest outside the Annual General Meeting in Glasgow calls the move a “backwards step”, which will disproportionally impact women, carers and the disabled.
Unite is dedicated to advancing the jobs, pay and conditions of its members and will fight back against any efforts to diminish workers' living standards.
