ESB

ESB2Hundreds of ESB workers gather outside the ESB’s headquarters on Lower Fitzwilliam Street in Dublin.

They’re protesting an approval, made at today’s AGM, to pay a €78.4m dividend to the State/exchequer.

The workers claim the move is unlawful and that it will undermine the semi-State body’s ability to sort out a €1.6billion deficit in the ESB’s pension fund.
