Cadbury’s factory, Coolock, Dublin
Strike action over outsourcing continues with a full withdrawal of labour for an indefinite duration.
Three hundred and thirty production staff downed tools at 7am yesterday following a Labour Court recommendation to outsource 17 jobs in the factory’s stores section.
Trade unions Siptu and Unite will begin talks this afternoon at the Workplace Relations Commission (WRC) on behalf of Cadbury’s staff in attempt to settle the dispute.
Typical irish workers and union, Labour court sides with employers so they strike, yet if the labour court found against the employer they’d be demanding the company stood by the decision of the court.
17 redeployed (not let go) and Unions act to put the nearly 700 jobs at risk!
this is madness. Irish style!
and when the place is shut down the unions will blame the government for not creating jobs!!!
Redeployed yea…to Poland….thats some commute….Go back to your bottle of Heino….Roight….
No they were not.
Guinness man myself thanks Alrigh!
only if there is no Guinness, Smithwicks, Creans, Tea, coffee, water…then and only then would I drink Heineken.
Nobody is redeployed. A company owes it’s staff nothing but what they agree to work for. If the company wants 1000s of staff outside Ireland it has nothing to do with the irish staff.
No, no, no… THIS is Madness Irish style…
True, have seen them play before. Great fun!
NO, NO, NO…That was Toots and The Maytals Irish style.
It’s been a standard with Dublin pub bands since before Rocky Develera changed his name to Ferdia MacAnna.
Yeah good stuff, it was a throwaway joke.
I was only using it as a vehicle for my throwaway joke.
Just jockeybacking. That’s allowed, isn’t it?
Irish unions do have a tendency to get a bit ‘circular firing squad’ at times.
The Luas workers have also rejected the Labor court recommendations numerous times. Shocker.
Thank you… somebody said it … I definitely had a hearty laugh at it!
I prefer to eat real chocolate.
You no like Cadbury?
Give me a snickers and I’m a happy woman.
I like a bit of Turkish Delight….
Settle down at the back there.
the Turkish Delight is very under appreciated…..great bar….
Oh dear me no. Just no. It’s an abomination.
What Disasta said… it’s like meat on Friday, or acts of gayness, an abomination !
More for me so!
you be havin the gayness or the turkish?
or a haf an haf?
I’ll just have the Turkish, thanks.
A Kit-Kat is the only four fingers I want inside me.
Would you not treat yourself to a Chunky every now and again?
As a Sarf Landan friend of mine says, I’m off for a Turkish.
there’s no chocolate in their sugar
something something blueshirt something
awwwww, missed me!
hope that’s not a cadburys chocolate chip on your shoulder
