TAB Contact Centre cutting jobs

The TAB is cutting 54 jobs at a call centre in Auckland.  The New Zealand Racing Board, which runs the call centre, is selling the building in Ellerslie and moving the work to Wellington and Christchurch.

Staff at the centre would be made redundant in October.  The board said most of the workers were part-time or casual.

The Service and Food Workers Union told the broadcaster it was disappointed with the announcement.
