EU sources -European trade union alliance to coordinate strategy against HP dismissals -October 19, 2012

Uni Global and IndustriALL have started a European alliance to coordinate the trade union representation of Hewlett Packard (HP) workers in ten different countries. Earlier this year, HP announced it would be reducing its global workforce by 29000 jobs, 8000 of which would have to come from Europe. HP has made a number of national announcements about layoffs, but failed to provide clarity about how many jobs would be shed in which countries.
