The future’s not ‘Orange , but ‘Manila’ for the mobile phone company’s British staff working in a UK call centre who were told that they could keep their jobs, but only if they move to the Philippines!

Telecom giant, Orange, announced that their jobs were being outsourced to The Philippines this week, as more British jobs are exported by a company which made it’s fortune from British people.

UK staff were informed in a bungled memo that they would also a get ‘rice allowance’ as part of the relocation package. According to reports, one employee stated that ‘it’s a complete joke’.

When staff asked for details of the transfer package they were handed a sheet of paper with what the Manila employees receive. It’s less than US$326.34 a month with a rice and laundry allowance, which shows exactly why they are exporting the jobs.

Orange yesterday stated all 40 Darlington staff had been offered other work in the UK and should never have been given a relocation option. A spokesman added that this was an HR error, for which they apologize. They are in contact with the 40 employees involved and will be making it clear that they are not asking or expecting people to move to Manila.
