    IRELAND : 50 Xerox workers to lose jobs
    November
    2008 Xerox in Dundalk is making 50 workers redundant as part of what
    the firm calls ‘global restructuring’.Dundalk’s biggest employer
    announced it is seeking 50 voluntary redundancies at a meeting of its
    336 staff at the Dublin Road plant on Friday afternoon.The company told
    the Argus it would move to compulsory redundancies if there were not
    enough volunteers but stressed the American office equipment giant
    remains committed to Dundalk.

    The jobs will be lost in the
    worldwide production systems manufacturing section of the business and
    the toner operation in Dundalk will not be affected.Management,
    technical and support staff in the worldwide production department have
    been asked to come forward for voluntary redundancy and it is expected
    the jobs will be lost by the new year at the latest.

    Xerox
    refused to say what offer was on the table for staff, saying employees
    ‘will be engaged to discuss the impact of this in more detail’.The
    Dundalk job losses are part of a $400 million worldwide review of the
    company’s operations around the globe and come on the back of poor
    third quarter results in October.

    The company said: ‘These
    reductions, while very difficult decisions, help us reduce our cost
    base and drive operational improvements across the board.’Our
    restructuring actions are designed to get our costs in line with the
    rest of the business and provide flexibility to weather the challenges
    of an uncertain economy’.
