More than 600 hotel employees could lose their jobs in Dublin under the restructuring plans recently announced by Jurys Doyle Hotel Group, according to Ireland's largest trade union Siptu. The trade union said about 900 people were employed at the company's three Ballsbridge hotels in Dublin, and only about a third of these would be accommodated in the newly developed Berkeley Court, which could take some time to be completed.

The company has disputed Siptu's figures, citing 410 full-time and 230 part-time employees at the three hotels. However the union said management was failing to include banqueting and conference staff in its calculations.

It is understood that workers are likely to seek redundancy payments greater than the package of 5.5 weeks pay for each year of service paid to colleagues made redundant in Cork in late 2004.
