The news of the outsourcing of these employees to the service company IBM will result in significant concern and worry for the impacted employees. Staff will now be anxious for their job security and changes to their pensions.
Dominic Hook, Unite national officer said: “Unite is seeking urgent reassurance from IBM and Lloyds Banking Group about the long term job security of the 1,500 IT staff.
“This announcement will leave staff nervous about their future and angry about the loss of their final salary pension. The key concern for staff is that they get assurances about what this change will mean following the transition period and that there will be no change to their pay and terms and conditions.
“Unite will be meeting with staff over the coming days to hear their concerns and seeking further discussions with IBM about the future of the 1,500 staff. It is key to the staff who are being transferred that their new employer continues to recognise their trade union Unite for collective bargaining.”
