1'000 UK jobs to go at HP

Hewlett Packard plans to reduce its UK workforce with 1'124 employees, starting early 2014.
The job cuts totalling 1,124 will be made at the Bracknell, Sheffield and Warrington hubs, although many of those facing redundancy either work from home or within the organisations employing HP.

The computer maker points to a falling demand and reorganisation as the reason for the job losses, which will be implemented in the first three months of 2014.

Unite national officer Ian Tonks said: “Unite will be doing everything possible to mitigate these job losses which are a hammer blow to the UK’s IT sector and very distressing for employees in the run-up to Christmas.”

A total of 618 jobs could be lost at the Bracknell hub, although the employees work at multiple locations; 483 will go at Warrington; and 23 at Sheffield.
