Taoiseach slams Talk Talk over handling of Waterford closure

The Taoiseach has sharply criticised Talk Talk management over their handling of the closure of the Waterford plant.
Speaking this morning, Enda Kenny was strongly critical of the short notice given for the closure, which is resulting in the loss of 575 jobs.
Workers were told yesterday that the centre is to close in 30 days.
Mr Kenny said that the least that could be done was to give some signal in advance that such a devastating move was planned to allow state agencies to look for an alternative employer.
He said the company's behaviour was "discourteous" and that the workforce and the people of Waterford had served the UK-based company well.
