Last summer, the H.W. Wilson Company, a leading provider of library resources, was taken over by Ebsco Publishing. Forty staff in the Dublin office lost their jobs. Ebsco refused to talk with these employees and has now decided to ignore a recommendation from the Irish Labour Court, which said Ebsco should issue a redundancy payment in line with industry norms. We’re calling on this giant multinational to do the right thing and abide by the Court’s recommendation. The company no longer has a physical presence in Ireland, so we are forced to use social media instead. It would be great if you could mention our campaign and/or put up links to our petition (here), blog (here) or Facebook page (here). Thanks for your support.
