SIPTU and Unite members will suspend their strike action at the Cadbury’s production plant in Coolock, Dublin 5, to facilitate discussion and a ballot on proposals aimed at resolving a dispute concerning outsourcing at the company.
SIPTU Sector Organiser, John Dunne, said: “Following discussions today (Friday, 4th March), the Workplace Relations Commission has put forward proposals which achieve cost savings at the company but do not involve the outsourcing of jobs. On the basis that outsourcing is now off the table, SIPTU and Unite members have decided to suspend their strike action.
“SIPTU and UNITE will convene a joint shop stewards meeting and then proceed to ballot our members on these proposals.”
