SIPTU members at Liebherr Container Cranes, Killarney, Co. Kerry, are seeking clarification of a number of points, for the avoidance of doubt, in a Labour Court recommendation issued in relation to the dispute at the company concerning its failure to honour a pay claim that was due to workers since 2009.
SIPTU Organiser, Marie Kearney, said: “The workers have a number of concerns in relation to the Labour Court recommendation which was issued on Friday 6th December, following a hearing on Wednesday 4th December.
“A statement issued by the management of Liebherr in relation to the recommendation has proven extremely unhelpful and calls into doubt the company’s commitment to respecting the terms of the Labour Court recommendation.”
She added: “It is hoped that further correspondence with the Labour Court will clarify the issues of concern.”
