65 Jobs To Be Cut At Coca-Cola Facility In Drogheda
It has been reported that up to 65 jobs are to be cut following the announcement from the Coca-Cola Company.
As reported by RTE News, the announcement follows a global review of the company of its Integrated Services division.
The soft drinks maker will still provide some 200 jobs in the area.
A spokesperson from the company said that the company is changing the way it works to increase speed and agility.
"The company's Integrated Services organisation provides a broad range of support services globally, including for finance, procurement, human resources and a number of other areas,” the spokesperson said.
"As we move to the next generation of services, we’re looking for opportunities to think innovatively. This includes the use of third-party providers to provide managed services. We will work to treat all employees fairly and compassionately throughout this process."
Local Louth TDs have been quick to make their disappointment known, reflecting on the presence the company has had on the local economy.
It is understood that redundancies will be rolled out between October and January.
It is also suggested that ten new roles will be introduced at the Southgate facility.
