The pharmaceutical giant, GlaxSmithKline (GSK) has denied that hundreds of pharmaceutical jobs are to be cut at it’s plant in Ireland.
GSK employs almost 1,400 people in Ireland. The pharmaceutical company announced that a business review will be conducted at their manufacturing site in Cork but deny that any restructuring or job cuts will take place. A spokesperson from GSK stated, GlaxoSmithKline Cork recently briefed its workforce that as part of its ongoing restructuring programme, first introduced in 2008, it is undertaking a business review at the Cork site which is expected to be completed by the autumn,”
A source at GSK has described media reports indicating that hundreds of pharmaceutical jobs will be cut as ‘completely inaccurate’.
However, pharmaceutical jobs have recently been cut in rival pharmaceutical companies. For example Pfizer has announced it’s plans to close all three of it’s sites in Ireland, with a potential loss of 785 pharmaceutical jobs.
