Fury As Jobs ‘Lost To India’ - Uk Govt To Export More Jobs To India

Recommended Posts

COMPUTER technicians in Sheffield under contract to the Department for Work and Pensions could be made redundant if the Government transfers the work to India.

Around 50 of the 200 staff at Hewlett Packard, on Napier Street, Sheffield, are currently working on the contract - alongside people based in Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Lytham St Annes, on the Lancashire coast.

Now staff have voted for industrial action if it is decided to transfer work offshore.

Adrian Wood, convenor for Public and Commercial Services Union at Hewlett Packard in Sheffield, said: “We fear jobs may be lost if the contract is transferred to India and Hewlett Packard cannot find affected staff alternative work.

“The change is being pushed through due to efforts by the DWP to save money.”

Saving money by exporting jobs which might result in said staff claiming unemployment benefit, housing benefit, mortgage interest relief ..... Will that actually save money apart from DWP actual work budget.

Is this connected to the NEST deal going to India?

October 2010 Ratan Tata becomes a government advisor

November 2010 Tata get a £600m contract

The competition to provide administrative services to Nest was concluded early, prompting some to question the value of Tata’s bid.

From what i am told the majority of the workers on the site in Lytham St Annes are from India anyway, so it will not make any difference

You have to hand it to the Indians, get yourself an Indian "advisor" and his first piece of advice is to sack everyone and outsource to India.

You just don’t see that sort of Nationalism here anymore.
