Computacenter confirms £150m BT gig

Gains union support

Computacenter today confirmed that it has won an outsourcing contract worth £150 million over five years to supply desktop services to BT.

Happily - for PR purposes, if nothing else - the Communications Workers Union (CWU)is supporting the deal. Computacenter is taking on 362 BT staff under TUPE regulations. The contract kicked off on Friday, March 22.

News of negotiations between Computacenter and BT were leaked to The Guardian newspaper in February, after BT staff were informed of the discussions. ®
