And All Because The Ladies Love Milky Tay




This morning.

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!!!

            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…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.

            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.

            I’ll just have the Turkish, thanks.

            A Kit-Kat is the only four fingers I want inside me.
