Thousands of BT employees are ramping up plans for a national strike for the first time in nearly 30 years as Britain faces a wave of industrial unrest this winter.
It is understood that 45,000 workers canvassed across BT and its Openreach and EE arms are largely in favour of a formal vote on industrial action early next year.
The row at BT centres on chief executive Philip Jansen's attempts to overhaul the company and modernise its infrastructure, cutting 13,000 jobs and shuttering offices in a bid to find £2billion in cost savings each year.
