Further to the abrupt closure announcement.
SIPTU [The Services, Industrial, Professional and Technical Union] will host a rally in support of the Clery’s workers outside the store in O’Connell Street, Dublin (top), tomorrow between 12-2pm to “highlight the demand that the new owners [Natrium Ltd] meet with staff”.
Via the union:
SIPTU Sector Organiser, Teresa Hannick, said: “The way these workers have been treated by Natrium, the consortium which took over Clery’s on Friday and then liquated the company, is completely unacceptable…These workers have hundreds of years of service between them and should be treated with the due respect they deserve.”
SIPTU representatives will meet with representatives of KPMG, the court appointed liquidators of the company, in Liberty Hall, Dublin, tomorrow morning prior to the rally.
Later, tomorrow evening a delegation of workers and union representatives will meet with the Minister of State for Business and Employment, Ged Nash. This meeting will focus on ensuring that the workers concerns about how they have been treated by the new owners of the company are adequately addressed….
