Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Crowe expresses belief that Jacobs will continue to operate in Tallaght

3 March, 2006

Sinn Féin TD for Dublin South West Sean Crowe has said he believes that workers at the Jacobs factory in Tallaght will support recommendations from the union and the long term future of the plant will be secured.   Deputy Crowe said:   "I was speaking to workers at the plant last night and it is clear that there is agreement from management and workers alike that changes are required if the long term future of the plant is to be secured.  I believe that workers will today back union proposals to accept the survival package.   "Jacobs have been good employers in this community for many years and the loss of 300 jobs would be devastating not just for the workforce but for the entire community.  I believe that with goodwill on all sides jobs at this plant can be saved."ENDS
