Welfare payments for Keith Prowse workers being processed

There was some good news for the former workers at Keith Prowse call centre in Buncrana today when it was confirmed that social welfare payments for those effected are being processed.

One hundred jobs were lost earlier this month with the announcement that the centre was to close after its parent company went into liquidation.

There was concern that a hold up in workers receiving the p40's would hold up the welfare payments however the company has issued letters to Social Welfare resolving the issue.

It has also been confirmed that outstanding wages owed to the workers have now been paid.
