    OUTSORCED TO INDIA  ,HP CUTS ANOTHER 1300 UK JOBS
    HP
    will slash a further 1,300 jobs from its operations in the United
    Kingdom, adding to the 900 jobs it said it would cut by October as part
    of a mass global headcount cull.The job cuts continued HP’s withdrawal
    from the UK, with the vendor’s main union, Unite, noting that the latest
    round of cuts brought its total to 4,000 over the past two years.”These
    job cuts mainly involve the export of jobs to HP locations outside the
    UK,” the union said in a statement Monday, suggesting the jobs would go
    to India.

    The cuts were part of its plan to “transform HP’s
    enterprise services” business, HP said in a statement issued to local
    media.Unite said that its Indian arm – Unite of India – was also
    launching a “decency at work” campaign in response to pay and benefits
    cuts leading to increased stress.”IT employees in India are complaining
    about the stress caused by tremendous pressure to live up to
    unreasonable targets and deadlines,” Peter Skyte, Unite national
    officer, said in a statement.

    The cull came as the UK Government
    signaled that it may audit government IT contracts valued over 100
    million pounds following a scathing review released yesterday by Top
    Shop owner, Sir Philip Green.HP became one of the UK’s largest IT
    service suppliers after it acquired Texan IT services giant Electronic
    Data Services (EDS) in 2008.

    According to UK government
    technology news site, Kable, HP inherited an EDS contract with
    Department for Work and Pensions that netted it £656.9m (AU$1.05
    billion) last financial year.HP told investors in June that it would
    slash 9,000 jobs from its global workforce of 340,000 in the hope of
    generate between US$500 million (A$596 million) and US$700 million
    (A$835 million) in net savings by the end of fiscal 2013.

    While
    HP has revealed job cuts in Europe and the US, the company remained
    tight-lipped on Australian losses.However, staff at HP’s Australian
    services division – formerly EDS – have alleged that cuts numbering the
    hundreds were being made, while the company confirmed it was cutting
    salaries as part of its integration of EDS.
