Intel workers cannot be left pondering their fate

As if discovering that their jobs are under threat wasn't bad enough, thousands of Intel workers in Kildare, Clare and Cork must now wait until next week before learning their fate.

Not until after the Bank Holiday weekend, next Tuesday or Wednesday, will staff be told about the numbers of people expected to be let go across the company's sites, what areas of the business will be affected and what the terms of any redundancy package will be.

This is simply not good enough. Workers deserve to be told their fate, and not be forced to spend days worrying about whether they have to find a new job.
