The unions, SIPTU, the TEEU and Unite have said they want to secure decent redundancy terms for workers being let go and save as many jobs as possible.



The company has blamed ‘the high cost of operating in Ireland’ for its resent announcement to end manufacturing at its factory in Shannon, with the loss of 370 jobs.

Representatives of SIPTU are to report back to members on the initial discussions held today.

It is understood the two sides are to meet again at the LRC on Thursday September 3.
