Disney in June had laid off about 250 employees and replaced them with Indians holding H1-B visas . 

Meanwhile, in the UK

GMB wrote to the Migration Advisory Committee and Home Office asking them to clampdown on abuse of tier 2 visas by BA and TCS following the outsourcing of the jobs. See notes to editors for copy of GMB press release dated 22nd December 2015.

There are around 900 jobs at risk, with BA IT colleagues based at various locations in the UK, at BA Headquarters at Waterside in Harmondsworth, West London, BA’s call centre in Newcastle, and at other locations in Manchester, Cardiff and Scotland.
