    Outsourced Xerox jobs will be lost
    August
    2007 ,Up to 900 jobs at Xerox in Blanchardstown in west Dublin are set
    to be lost over the next two years following a review of the company’s
    operations.The affected employees work mainly in a customer support
    call centre for Xerox clients worldwide. Earlier this month Xerox
    announced that this business would be outsourced to a division of IBM
    from September.In relation to earlier reported assurances that no jobs
    would not be lost, Xerox said that at no point was there a guarantee
    that jobs were secure.The work carried out in the call centre is set to
    be sent abroad, leading to the Irish-based jobs being shed. The jobs
    will go through natural wastage and redundancy.RTE has learned that
    while the affected employees will be IBM employees from September, it
    is Xerox which will underwrite the cost of the redundancy
    programme.Some 800 people will remain working for Xerox in
    Blanchardstown and Dundalk. These jobs are not under any threat.The IDA
    says it is working closely with both companies to ensure their Irish
    operations remain competitive and sustainable into the future. The
    majority of the employees affected are from abroad.It is understood
    that IBM will offer a number of those affected a financial incentive to
    re-deploy within IBM. But it is also understood the re-deployment will
    not be widely available
