An Post is denying they need to cut two thousand jobs to survive.
The Irish Times is reporting today that the company needs 500 job losses a year over four years.
The paper says the numbers were outlined in a confidential briefing to Cabinet just days before An Post announced a 50 million euro investment in their network.
This morning An Post confirmed the number of 2000 redundancies is from a strategic review in March 2017.
The statement from the company says the company has achieved a major turnaround since then and is performing well ahead of plan and does not anticipate job reductions of this magnitude.
