Efforts to have Dixie reconsider its exit from Antigua and Barbuda have failed.
The call centre on Old Parham Road informed staff moments ago that the company will close on April 27th.
Staff is not required to work during that period. They have been on temporary layoff since last week.
The company told staff via a zoom meeting that they will be paid full severance and bonuses.
They will also be allowed to keep the computers they have been using for work.
Close to 200 people are employed there some of them for many years.
Prime Minister Gaston Browne said last week he asked the company to delay their exit given the harsh economic times.
The closure is said to be based on “regulatory issues.”
