Government service provider 'propping up its share price' ahead of merger with HPE
The British government must wake up to service delivery implications of the latest mega-layoff scheming at CSC given the number of sensitive public sector contracts held, and work with the business and others to "root out the worst excesses of capitalism".
Or so Toby Perkins, Labour MP for Chesterfield, argued during a House of Commons debate relating to the 1,101 employees CSC put on the chopping block prior to January, in addition to a separate 399 job cuts announced in November and 100 in September.
All are due to have left by the end of this month.
Other contracts are held with BAE Systems, Aviva, the Department for Work and Pensions and the Ministry of Defence.
However, when the company has experienced so much upheaval and has gone from one failure to another, and given the sensitivity and national importance of CSC's work, I think that the government should be very interested indeed," Perkins said.
