Although I sympathise with AC@22:00, I support this action. HP/EDS are simply taking advantage of current financial conditions to cut benefits. As an ex-employee of EDS they were never particularly generous - the worst thing that can happen is that this disgraceful downgrading of T's & C's go unchallenged.

In better times I would encourage every employee to find a job - quickly - with another company, because HP does not deserve any loyalty. What is taking place is immoral, plain and simple.
