Hewlett Packard is facing another round of strikes in the UK, as the row between management and union employees continues over jobs and pay cuts.

According to IT Pro, the latest rounds of action are due to take place on March 29th and 30th and April 6th and 7th, and involves staff located at Newcastle, Preston, Lytham St. Annes, Norcross and Washington who are working on projects for the MoD and the Department for Work and Pensions.

“Staff have worked hard to help the company deliver billions of pounds in revenues and feel betrayed by HP’s refusal to address concerns on jobs and pay,” said the general secretary of the Public and Commercial Services union, Mark Serwotka.

"The company needs to start valuing its own workforce and negotiate a settlement that addresses the concerns of the workforce.”
