No redundancy pay for 30 call centre workers

THIRTY workers who lost their jobs at a call centre have been told they won't be paid redundancy because it has gone into liquidation.

Administrators KPMG told staff at the Buncrana-based Assetco Managed Services last night their positions providing support services to the London Fire Brigade have been done away with.

London Fire Brigade failed to renew a major contract for parent company Assetco London Ltd, leading to the closure of the business and its Irish subsidiary.

Shell-shocked workers at the company, based at the IDA Business Park in the Co Donegal town since 2006, were told the news last night.

The workers have also been told that they will not receive redundancy because the company has gone into liquidation.
