William Hill resolves internet workers' row
The bookmaker William Hill said it had resolved a dispute with workers at its online operations in Tel Aviv and Bulgaria and parted company with seven senior managers.
Ralph Topping, chief executive, had been in Israel since Friday to resolve the dispute that led to the walk out of more than 150 staff at William Hill Online. The industrial action in Tel Aviv followed the resignation of Eyal Sanoff, chief marketing officer of William Hill Online, the joint venture with Playtech, and head of its office there.
Mr Sanoff, one of seven senior online managers to have left, is alleged to have tried to stop an attempt to conduct an internal audit of its systems in Tel Aviv, amid allegations that some staff had tried to set up a rival business. The other six faced disciplinary action over allegations that they engaged in sabotaging the systems. Copycat walk outs followed in Manila and Bulgaria.
The bookie reported that "normal operations have resumed and William Hill remains committed to its operation in Tel Aviv". It issues its third-quarter results tomorrow.
