Dilegenta have announced that they will exit their UK house in Salisbury as part of changes to their business structure. The company says its unknown exactly how many employees will be affected, but the union Unite, say '15 per cent of the work is being offshored to India.'
We are shocked and disappointed by the scale of the proposed job losses – and angry that up to 15 per cent of this work is being offshored to India.
Unemployment is high in Exeter and Salisbury and we believe these job losses will have a major detrimental impact on the local economies and communities.
We are fundamentally opposed to the dismissal of UK workers purely because the work they do can be done at lower cost by workers in another country. This work should remain in the UK - at Exeter and Salisbury."
