RBS to shed 40% of Lon­don IT staff

PC Pro - - Briefing News -

The Unite union claimed that tax­payer-owned bank RBS was to cut 40% of its UK IT staff, with the loss of 900 jobs due to cost-cut­ting, re­struc­tur­ing and off­shoring. The bank said any changes were down to it be­ing a “sim­pler, smaller” bank, but Unite said the cuts com­ing into ef­fect by 2020 would leave it “op­er­at­ing a skele­ton ser­vice”.
