Adams condemns Vodafone job cuts

27 May, 2011 - by Gerry Adams

Sinn Féin President and TD for Louth and East Meath Gerry Adams has condemned the decision of Vodafone to cut 139 jobs with another 45 at risk and he has called on the Government to urgently intervene to save these jobs.

Mr. Adams said:

“Vodafone's decision to cut 139 jobs at Dundalk and Leopardstown, and move many of them to Egypt and India is disgraceful and is in stark contrast to the huge profits it has made on its Irish investments. Last year it cleared €120m. Vodafone's thank you to its Irish workforce and customers is to cut jobs.

“This is unacceptable and to be condemned. This evening I spoke to a representative of the workforce.

“There is an urgent onus on the government to immediately intervene to save these jobs.” ENDS
