From RTE

Up to 900 jobs are to be shed over the next two years at Xerox in Blanchardstown in west Dublin, following a review of the company’s operations in Ireland. The employees, who mainly work in a customer support call centre for Xerox clients, are to be transferred to a global services division within IBM from September.

So is this 900 hundred jobs lost or 900 people moving to IBM not really sure?

    It was originally thought to be just a transfer but it is looking like 900 redundancies over 2 years now. Have a look at the article on ENN:

    reported as redundencies on RTE, with the posts moving to Eastern Europe, Scotland, India and the Phillipines.

    The loss of high end jobs to Scotland is bound to worry those who keep an eye on the IDA and jobs since the new administration in Scotland will be a clear leader in the moves up North. The loss of high end jobs, to western Europe is a big black mark against Government policy and also government action on cheap costs and its primary mover, cheap credit.
