1,000 jobs lost to India.
Prudential will announce tomorrow it intends to axe 850 call-centre jobs and 150 back-up staff at its base in Reading, Berks.
The work will be handled at a new centre in Mumbai.
Unions fear that this is the "tip of the iceberg" and that 70,000 jobs may be lost to Indian call-centres by the end of the decade.
Roger Lyons, of Amicus, said: "They are double-crossing staff."
