The subsidy of an US IT giant, AT&T Global Network Services Slovakia, announced mass dismissals in its facilities in Bratislava and Kosice. According to the employment office, 439 employees in total will be made redundant in both facilities. In Bratislava, the company employs 1800 employees, out of which 292 will be dismissed. In Kosice, 147 out of 1,000 employees will be dismissed. The dismissals should be accomplished by 1 April 2021. According to the company speaker, the redundancies are attributed to declining demand for services caused by the COVID-19 crisis.
