SIPTU IS TO seek an urgent meeting with Allied Foods after the company revealed that it is to cut 175 jobs.

In a statement this evening, the trade union said it wants to meet with the firm to discuss alternatives to the redundancies.

Workers at Allied Logistics, a division of Allied Foods, were informed today that the company was seeking to reduce its workforce at the Tallaght operation from 250 to 75.

Management said the decision came after the company lost a contract with Dunnes Stores for the distribution of chilled and frozen products.

A 30-day consultation between Allied Foods and SIPTU will now begin.

The news comes as fears for up to 250 jobs at Dublin-based IT firm Pocket Kings grow.
