Ziggo’s Workforce Cuts Higher Than Expected

Dutch media outlet The NL Times reports that Ziggo will cut around 20% of its staff as a result of its merger with Liberty Global’s UPC Netherlands division (Display Monitor Vol 21 No 2).

Combined, UPC and Ziggo will have about 4,500 employees, of which about 900 will be made redundant. The job losses are higher than the 500-600 mark expected by trade unions.
