Following lengthy discussions with the Bord na Móna Group of Unions (GOU), management has agreed to suspend the letters of lay-off sent to all permanent staff at Mount Dillon, county Longford. SIPTU Sector Organiser, Willie Noone, said: “Local discussions will take place next week with a view to maximising the number of workers who can remain in employment. The GOU is satisfied with the progress made today. The outcome also confirms that all parties are committed to the recent collective agreement made between the GOU and the company.”
