    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’.
