Waterford Crystal Workers To End Sit-In After Deal Is Reached

 

Updated : Mar 23, 2009

Workers at Waterford Crystal have voted to end an eight-week sit-in at the company’s premises in Kilbarry and to accept an agreement with the new owners that will save 176 jobs.

Members of the Unite trade union at the company began their sit-in at the plant’s visitors’ centre on January 30th, sparked by the receiver’s decision to shut down manufacturing there but today workers chose to accept an agreement negotiated between Unite, new owners KPS, and the receiver and the sit in will now be ended “over the next 24 hours”.

“Within the next six to eight weeks a consortium of Waterford business leaders, headed by Nicky Fewer, will engage with representatives of the work force to complete preparatory work on their proposal to secure a manufacturing presence at Kilbarry,” a statement on behalf of the workers said.
“It is hoped this proposal will result in the retention of manufacturing of Waterford Crystal in Waterford the home of the world renowned brand.”

VeryHappyPig is very happy for the workers at Waterford Cyrstal!
