400 Limerick Jobs To Go At Dell

Around 400 temporary jobs are set to go at a Dell computer plant in Limerick, as the economic crisis takes a stronger hold.

Most of the workers affected are believed to have worked at the plant for between three and 18 months.

The computer giant has insisted the move is standard practice, and will have no effect on the other 3,000 full-time workers employed at the facility.

Dell said it employs temporary staff on a three-month basis, contracts which are regularly terminated at the end of each business quarter.

According to Dell, the employment opportunities could be reinstated if the economic conditions improve.
