November 24th:  Confirming that unions representing members in Confederation of Paper Industries employers, including Saica and Smurfit-Kappa in Northern Ireland, have decided to suspend industrial action scheduled over the next days, Unite Regional Officer, Nigel Gregg said:

“We welcome the agreement reached between trade unions and the Confederation of Paper Industries to bring forward further negotiations.

“Employers have confirmed to us their interest in negotiating a two-year pay settlement. In order to give space to this process, the unions have agreed to suspend their action for twenty-eight days – this means that industrial action planned for Saica and Smurfit-Kappa plants in Warrenpoint and Lurgan over the next days will not go ahead”, Mr Gregg concluded.
