RECALICITRANT BILL PAYER Dell is asking for 100 staff from its Limerick plant to take voluntary redundancy as part of its plan to axe 10 percent of its workforce worldwide, reports ENN.

The company 'will reconsider the situation should it fail to make the targeted number of cuts' inside two months.

Of the 3,000 staff at Limerick, Dell is inviting workers in IT, human resources, and marketing departments, along with managers, to pop into the billard room with a bottle of brandy and a service revolver.

Dell's Cherrywood plant near Dublin, is not affected, says the company. µ
