IBM UK facing 'backlash' over pension snuffing


Skippy, the Butcher Kangaroo

Make no mistake, Skippy (the Australian head of IBM UK, parachuted in to do Armonk's dirty work) has seriously underestimated the effect on IBM's staff. He will get his way, remove hundreds of people with no redundancy pay, make the corporation's share price tidier and trouser a nice payoff before heading back down under.

He will leave behind a demoralised, de-skilled and bitter workforce, massively unionised and ready to look outside a company that treats its loyal employees like kangaroo dung.

Escape - because that's what hundreds more employees will be trying to do.
