Ferris Calls on Green Isle to abide by Labour Court

23 February, 2010 - by Martin Ferris TD


The Sinn Féin Spokesperson on Workers Rights, Martin Ferris TD, has reiterated his call on Green Isle Foods in Naas to honour the Labour Court ruling in relation to workers who were made redundant there. Deputy Ferris was reacting to reports that talks between the company and the TEEU union which represents striking workers at the plant have broken down.

Deputy Ferris said:

“Green Isle needs to abide by the Labour Court order that it pay improved redundancy or reinstate those workers whose sacking was the subject of the case. It must also undertake not to sack those workers who are currently on strike and who last week began a hunger strike."

Deputy Ferris will raise the issue in the Dail this afternoon and will call to the picket line in Naas. ENDS
