CITY VIEWS: ARE YOU WORRIED ABOUT ANOTHER WAVE OF STRIKES?

JAMES DEVON | GEORGESON

“I am not entirely worried about more strikes but I do expect more to
happen as it seems to be a growing trend at the moment. But they seem to be causing less impact now as companies are coping. I beat the tube strike by taking the
tube!”

SONY DHOKIA | TOUCH ONE ADVERTISING

“I am worried that more strikes will
happen, mainly because I think people are going to continue disputing low pay and now seems like the perfect chance to take action because of the
recession.”

RENATO RODRIGUES | BLP INSURANCE

“I think another wave of strikes is likely and I worry that strike action will inevitably cause distress. Unions should be sensitive to the state of the economy. Take a company like BA, which is really being harmed by strikes.”

RICHARD GRAINGER | TORUS INSURANCE

“I am not worried about more strikes but there seems to be a tendency now to move towards pro-actively taking strike action, which is naïve given the current economic climate. I do think there will be more strikes.”
