HP cutting 1,124 jobs in the U.K., says report

Layoffs are a part and parcel of a successful business. But if the layoffs rise to more than a thousand, the company suddenly becomes the center of attention, and, sometimes, criticism. Such is the case with HP.

According to the British and Irish trade union, Unite, Hewlett-Packard is planning to cut 1,124 jobs in the U.K. The affected sites will reportedly include Bracknell, Sheffield, and Warrington. Around 618 jobs will be axed in Bracknell, 483 in Bracknell, and 23 in Sheffield.

Citing the reason for the layoffs, Unite says HP blamed it on the falling demand and reorganization. Unite said that it will do its best to mitigate the job losses which is disappointing to U.K.'s IT industry, and also for the affected employees, especially with Christmas just around the corner.

"For the last five years HP has been addicted to a culture of job cuts in the UK to such an extent that its highly skilled workforce has little faith in the way the company is being managed and will be going forward," said Ian Tonks, a national officer for Unite.
