BSkyB HR chief quits after jobs threat

first_imgBSkyB HR chief quits after jobs threatOn 4 Mar 2003 in Personnel Today BSkyB group HR director Craig McCoy has resigned just weeks after hethreatened job losses if staff voted for union recognition. After an ongoing dispute with broadcasting union Bectu, McCoy sent a letter tostaff, telling them that the company would consider outsourcing its call centreoperation if a vote for recognition of the broadcasting union Bectu wassuccessful (News, 18 February). McCoy told staff: “We are prepared to consider alternative business models,including outsourcing, if we feel that our productivity and profitability arethreatened. I would urge you to think carefully before signing any paper whichputs job security at risk.” A source within BSkyB said the moves have led to staff joking that HR standsfor ‘humanoid robotics’, not human resources. BSkyB corporate communications manager Robert Fraser told Personnel Todaythat McCoy has resigned. “He decided to leave and take a career break for personalreasons,” Fraser said. McCoy had been group HR director at Sky for three years. A replacement willbe “announced in due course”, Fraser said. Gerry Morrissey, supervisory official at Bectu, said the union has been‘inundated’ with calls from Sky employees since McCoy’s letter. “I think the letter was regrettable,” he said. “It hasbackfired on Sky.” Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos.
