Offshoring

The company is increasingly employing people in locations with cheap labour. This is now significantly affecting development, helpdesks, support and design (CSA) jobs.
The latest “One Per Desk” leaflet being circulated at Central Park includes an update on company plans, explains how the new “Annex 1” agreement will help protect jobs and careers, and advertises the UNITE demonstration at the Labour Party conference on 23rd September, where offshoring will be a major theme. Copies of the leaflet are available on Café VIK and on OurUnion.
