THE decision yesterday by the EU Commission to give €55 million to Dell to assist the US computer giant transfer its Limerick manufacturing operation to Lodz in Poland sparked anger among the Dell workers who will lose their jobs by the end of the year.
More than 1,600 have already been let go at the doomed Limerick plant.
Another 400 will be left go by the end of January next.
Denis Ryan, chairman of the Dell workers’ committee, said: "This is a slap in the face from the EU to us.
They got taxpayers’ money to come to Ireland and when that runs out they pop on to Poland.
