          As with all industrial disputes the owners of the firms and the unions will always negotiate, but when it comes down to the crunchie the company will always aim to boost profits regardless of the quiet wispas in the corridors..

    Sure the Time Out is only one finger now! It literally is half the bar it used to be! Unless they have outsourced the production of the other finger to Poland

      Really? I always liked them.
      They were one of those bars though that my mum would buy but I’d never buy myself.

        Aye I saw them in a petrol station the other day – And before I could shout “Time Outs are back people” I copped the new “slim” figure.

    How dare they protest! I have completely unrelated professional circumstances I’m not happy with so these people who don’t even know I exist should accept their lot and not be giving their gracious multinational employer such a headache.

      thats a bit harsh Moyest, no matter how thin the pancake it always has two sides

        he’s just trying to get his oar in first to show his bone fides after the Luas idiocy

          They’re targeting Easter weekend now too, apparently.

          Because they’re just the loveliest people.

          They’ve no government minister around now with the authority to leap in and save their bums so they can go screw.

      They have the right to protest of course.

      If, however, you are worried that the company is re-comsidering its ‘commitment’ to production in Ireland, then striking seems like a counterproductive way to deal with it.

      Surely, in this case the union should be trying to see how it can use its knowledge & its perspective to help the factory run efficiently & reliably and safeguard jobs.

      You know, act like a partner to management rather than merely being confrontational?

    Not even one shot of the Oompa Loompas!

    ah no, I’m sure these guys are not set up as cushy as the LUAS workers

    When I was a kid one of my neighbours worked in that Cadbury’s factory and he said that the Time Out bar was specifically invented in Ireland. There for ya now.

    A regular bar of Cadbury’s Dairy Milk going for €1.50 these days, and talk about small!

        1. Cup of tea anyone?

          Next time you are at the till pick up an Animal Bar and a Freddo instead. Good chocolate, 30c each. Only downside is that the maze and word jumble hasn’t changed in 15 years.

    Wouldn’t indefinite strike in Dublin prove to Mondelez that outsourcing this type of critical stuff away from Dublin is clever?

    1. classter


      The same stupidity that killed Team Air Lingus, Dairygold, Irish Glass Bottle, etc.

    Public sector strike……the public suffers. Private sector strike in the modern globalized world…….the workers suffer.

    Time Out’s were the Jennifer Maguire TV shows of the chocolate world, nobody wanted them in the first place and nobody knows why they keep making them

      1. panga

        a finger of fudge is just enough to give the girls a treat *nudgenudgewinkwinksaynamore*

  9. Cup of tea anyone?

    It will be interesting to see how this plays out. The result will depend on the unions getting the public on their side. if they do that it will show that the public can show empathy if they believe the strike is for a good reason.

    And the Luas guys will have to look at the real reason they do not have the publics support.
