“One of our major problems is that CSC wants to use profitability as part of a matrix which it hadn’t before, that is causing us concern because this is a company that believes in performance-related pay,” Tonks added.
Redundancy sucks. Always has, always will.
Having said that, on what possible grounds could anyone view either performance related pay or profitability as being unfit metrics for retention/redundancy? Cutting cost is all about removing the less profitable staff, and rewarding people fairly is all about their individual performance. I don't see what the unions concern is here.
