ISD Power Kft, a provider of electricity, water, telephone, and other such services, has announced to cut 130 jobs out of 176 from its plant in Diósgy?r (Borsod-Abauj-Zemplén County).

The company is exclusively owned by ISD Dunaferr and mainly supplied DAM, a metallurgy company, which is indirectly owned by the owner of ISD Dunaferr, as well as more than seventy smaller businesses in the area. Shortly after the announcement, DAM was closed (13094).

Lay-offs at ISD Power Kft took place on 2 March 2009. Previously, the dismissed workers had received help from the Steel Foundation, which is funded by ISD Dunaferr, in the form of training and career guidance. They were also granted the option to decide whether to take their severance pay or to receive 80% of their previous salaries for a year.
