The article presents information on outsourcing in Great Britain. The fundamental purpose of a company, however enshrined in its Memorandum of Association, is to maximise profits and shareholder returns. If the best way of doing this is by offshoring certain functions, then the company can do so legitimately, even if this means that some Great Britain jobs are lost in the process. On the other hand, one of the fundamental purposes of a union, if not the fundamental purpose, is to safeguard the interests of its members. This almost inevitably involves trying to protect the jobs of its members.
