Flooding Hits Vodafone’s HQ and Newbury Business Park Sites




On Friday Vodafone workers evacuated buildings in the HQ and Newbury Business Park offices were closed after flooding hit the area. The Banbury call centre was also closed to allow staff to collect children from the local school.

Today some HQ buildings remain flooded and workers have been advised not to attend on Monday unless it is essential.

There is no immediate criticism of the way the company has handled this incident. We don’t hold the management responsible for the weather!

We would be interested to hear how workers have been treated by the company during the flooding, particularly those working in retail stores and call centres where experience is often vastly different to that seen by Newbury based members

oops! Hope you're not flooded out for long. No such bothers for me - I picked a really bad week to take as holiday ;)

Don't worry John, an army of 250 carpet fitters (I kid you not) desended of Vodafone HQ and worked 24/7 over the weekend, normalish service resumed today.

unlucky choice of holiday week, but I guess that's the great british weather for you!
