March 31st: Responding to today’s news that the Ranbaxy pharmaceutical plant in Cashel is to close with the loss of over 100 jobs, trade union Unite – which represents around 70 workers at the facility – said that the closure will be a significant blow to Cashel and the entire South-East.  Unite will start engaging with management on April 6th in a bid to secure the best terms for workers being made redundant.

Commenting, Regional Officer Tony Kelly said:

“Unite is very disappointed that Ranbaxy parent Sun Pharma has decided to close the Cashel plant having failed to find a buyer, especially as it is less than 12 months since the acquisition was made.  This news will come as a blow not only to the employees but also to the Cashel area and to the South-East as a whole.

“From next week, Unite will be engaging with management to secure the best terms for our members,  who have given long and dedicated service to the company”, Tony Kelly concluded.
