The Lockout is over.
Peace bin our time.
The agreement includes a redundancy package of two weeks’ pay plus statutory entitlements of two weeks per year of service for the workers who have decided to leave the company.
13 of the workers who are remaining with the company will retain their previous terms and conditions.
These workers will work on a Dublin City Council contract to collect waste from social housing units and will be selected according to length of service at the company.
Workers who are remaining with the company but will not be working on the social housing contract have agreed a wage reduction of between 15% and 20%.
These workers will also be compensated for the changes in their terms and conditions of employment by receiving a payment of a sum equal to 30% of the redundancy package to which they would have been entitled if they were leaving the company.
Result, in fairness.
