A leading technology firm has been urged to "come clean" about job losses after fears that up to 1,100 posts are to be axed, including posts in our region.
Unite said it will fight job cuts at Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC), including computer support staff and IT consultants at the company's main sites which include Chesterfield and Leeds.
The union said many jobs are expected to be offshored, with cuts due to take effect between March and September.
These cuts are aimed at culling backroom staff of the many household name clients that CSC has. We condemn the management for not coming clean as to the exact details on the two tranches of job cuts. The bosses need to be more transparent with those under threat of losing their jobs. You cannot remove this number of jobs and not seriously undermine frontline deliveries, whatever the product or service being provided. Some of the accounts affected impact on the smooth running of the NHS and can only worsen healthcare services, given that many of them are under strain at present. This is particularly worrying. The NHS cannot run without effective computer support systems and the reductions - in some cases proposals to make 50% redundant - could put patients' lives in jeopardy. However, these decisions are not even made in the UK, but in America."
CSC's main sites are at Aldershot, Banbury, Chesterfield, Chorley, Leeds, London and Preston.
