Cleaners employed by Allpro Ltd are staging a protest today, (Friday 16th December) at the Solas Training Centre in Raheen Business Park, Limerick over the non-payment of their wages. Allpro Ltd took over this State contract on 29th November last and immediately sought to make changes to the worker’s terms and conditions without negotiation or agreement. The workers, who were due to be paid yesterday, have been left without their wages, which means that they will have no money for Christmas.SIPTU Services Division Organiser, Rachel Keane said the union fully supports the workers.“These five cleaners have effectively worked for this new contractor for free for the past few weeks. These workers whose families depend on their wages have been left in desperate circumstances for Christmas. They intend to keep up the protest until they are paid,” Rachel Keane said.
