Talks Between Unions And Bord Na Mona Not Positive

Written 1 month ago by Newsroom

More than 70 Bord na Móna staff in the midlands may be laid off today.

It’s over the temporary closure of an ESB power-plant at Lanesboro, Co Longford.

Bord na Móna supplies the facility, and has already let go 78 seasonal workers.

Last week, it held off on dismissing 72 permanent staff until a meeting with unions yesterday.

Talks were adjourned until this morning – but Siptu’s Willie Noone says they weren’t positive.
