Thanet's SAGA call centre could be the next arena of 'strife' in Thanet. Rumour's abroad indicate that Saga has been recruiting new call staff on a greater basic wage than existing call staff and this has led to mutterings over beers in local watering holes about the need for a Union at Saga.
It would appear that the family atmosphere and 'we're all in this together' approach from the De Haan family days has evaporated since Charterhouse control. Low wages (this is Thanet after all ) combined with ever increasing 'sale's targets' to achieve a bonus seems to have been the tele-sales staff' lot for some now. The final straw seems to be a recruitment of 'labourers to the Saga vinyard' at different rates to experienced long serving staff.
Rumour has it that 21st century 'Tolpuddle' activists have already been carpetted for daring to talk 'Union' talk.
