The workforce at Dutch cable company Ziggo is set to be cut by 450 over the next three years, following the merger with UPC. In addition, a number of temporary contracts will not be renewed, the company confirmed.
Most jobs will go in the departments which focus on new product development, innovation and infrastructure as well as management.
UPC’s American owner Liberty Global took over Ziggo last year. The new company has a cable network covering 90 per cent of the Netherlands and 4.3 million clients.
