HP Enterprise Staff Strike After Redundancies
Almost 1,500 HP Enterprise Services staff have refused to work as part of industrial action against the company’s redundancy programme.
Speaking to the Register, the PCS trade union said that up to 90 per cent of the union’s 1,500 HPES members went on strike this week and are set to continue until today (July 26th).
The organisation claimed that HP is transferring roles at the company’s Sheffield offices to Newcastle and Scotland in order to pick up a grant from the Scottish government, with many staff already being left without jobs in South Yorkshire.
In a statement, HP told the news provider: “HP have a meeting scheduled with the PCS in early August at which it hopes dialogue with senior HP managers will lead to the dispute being resolved.
“In cooperation with our clients we have put together a plan to mitigate the impact of the two day action.”
