SIPTU representatives have expressed sincere condolences to the family and colleagues of John Murphy following his death due to injuries he received in a workplace accident at the Stryker plant at Anngrove in Carrigtwohill, County Cork, on 18th April. SIPTU Organiser, Allen Dillon, said: “Our members wish to offer our deepest condolences to the family of Mr Murphy. He has been in the thoughts of our members since the serious accident at the Stryker plant last month in which he and a colleague where injured. It is with deep regret that we heard the news this morning that his struggle for life has had such a tragic outcome.   “While the circumstances of this tragedy have yet to be fully explained, as we await the outcome of an investigation by the Health and Safety Authority, it highlights once more the crucial importance of workplace safety.”   He added: “SIPTU representatives have on a number of occasions sought discussions with the management of the Stryker plant in Carrigtwohill. Our members at the plant began raising health and safety concerns in 2019 and union representatives have been seeking engagement with management on these matters since then.”
