Government intervenes to establish Assetco worker’s rights

There are concerns that 30 staff, who lsot their jobs with the closure of the Assetco Managed Services call-centre in Buncrana, will not get a redundancy payment from the company

Initially workers were given until 5.30pm yesterday evening to agree to terms of exit with the administrators; this has now been extended until today.

Minister Bruton has formally requested Enterprise Ireland, NERA and the Department of Social Protection to definitively establish the rights of workers and has asked NERA to meet the workers concerned.

Assetco has been based on the Lisfannon business park since 2006.
