SIPTU representatives met with the management of Limerick FC on Tuesday, 17th July, following a ballot organised by the union in which players voted by an overwhelming majority for strike action if they are not paid outstanding wages. SIPTU Organiser, Denis Hynes said: “We met with Limerick FC players today following their ballot in which they endorsed strike action unless outstanding wages are paid. Some players were paid what they were owed on Tuesday and we have received assurances from the club that payments will be made by tomorrow to those who have not yet received what they are due.”“We will be monitoring the situation and the players will be putting the decision for industrial action into effect unless the matter has been resolved, as promised by the management of the club.”He said that discussions with the management of Bray Wanderers also took place on Tuesday but failed to resolve the issue of unpaid wages. SIPTU representatives and club management will have further talks later this week. If these discussions fail to resolve the issues, the players will not participate in the club’s league match against Cork City in the Carlisle Stadium in Bray on Friday 27th July and SIPTU pickets will be placed at the grounds.
