  10. The vindictive and nasty way banks are run show how CEOs, treat those who are below them, and these same people are paid huge salaries, as a repressive regime, a mirror image of colonization.

    UNION officials are calling for an investigation into illegal working hours which have been imposed by bosses at a call centre in the north-east.

    Parseq call centre in Sunderland, which numbers banks, supermarkets, local authorities, charities and companies among its clients, allegedly forced under-18s to work longer shifts with fewer breaks than laid down in Europe’s Working Time Regulations

    General union GMB is calling on Sunderland Council, the Health and Safety Executive and arbitration service Acas to investigate working hours at the firm.

    The regulations limit working hours for young people to eight hours a day and 40 hours a week.

    They are entitled to two days off a week and a 30-minute rest break if they work for more than 4.5 hours.

    GMB regional organiser Chris Preston said the issue must be “investigated immediately” and called for a Working Time Directive audit to check that the law isn’t being broken.

    “Certain jobs Parseq does for clients have forced overtime and on three days a week, Parseq requires every person on that contract to work an extra hour,” Mr Preston said.

    “Anyone who doesn’t do the overtime is required to work a later shift on a Friday as punishment.”

    Parseq could not be reached for comment.
