University of California IT Workers Sue After Losing Jobs To Outsourcing

Written by  Jack Hadfield

IT workers at the University of California intend to file a lawsuit challenging their dismissal after they were replaced by offshore workers, arguing that those sacked from the UC San Francisco campus were discriminated against based on age and national origin.

Around 80 people lost their positions in the department, including 50 full-time workers and 30 contractors, in a move that is unheard of in the public sector, where offsourcing is much less common than in the private sector. UCSF hired the India-based firm HCL to handle its services instead of the American workers.

Randall Strauss from Gwilliam Ivary Chiosso Cavalli & Brewer, the attorney representing the ex-employees, argued that “to take a workforce that is overwhelmingly over the age of 40 and replace them with folks who are mainly in their 20s – early 20s, in fact – we think is age discrimination.” The group also represents and “reflects the diversity of California” – to allow them to be “replaced with people who come from one particular part of the world” is discrimination based on their national origin, continued Strauss. The lawsuit will be filed in Alameda County Superior Court.

On Wednesday, details about UCSF’s financial situation emerged that may help the IT workers in their case.

Schools that get federal funding should not be allowed to do this and if they do they forfeit all government/federal funding

that would be hypocritical, since the federal and state governments use the same contractor bidding process.

UC= typical California hypocrites educating Snowflakes and Buttercups and giving American workers the finger.

It's not just manufacturing jobs, it's STEM jobs being outsourced. They can't say we're losing all our jobs to robotics, it's not true (at least for now). Maybe those in California can empathize with the Rust Belt when all their jobs are outsourced.
