RBS to shift 63 jobs to India

The Royal Bank of Scotland will cut 63 jobs in its business banking support unit in Britain and move these roles to India. The bank has confirmed this move. There is adverse reaction to the move as Trade union Unite said the ‘vicious cost-cutting measure’ was a ‘kick in the teeth’ for the workforce at the taxpayer-backed bank, which has already cut 30,000 jobs since 2008. The latest job losses will affect the support unit in Brighton and Unite said those in line to lose their jobs are long-serving staff with years of experience. The trade union said the bank is taking jobs out of the UK and sending them to India. There are indications that this maybe the start of a program of continued offshoring. This decision by RBS is a clear kick in the teeth to the loyal and experienced workforce in Brighton, as well as an assault on UK taxpayers who bailed out the bank, it said. A spokeswoman for the bank said there were no plans at the moment to outsource further jobs.
