unite-white-out-of-redUnion will seek ballot for industrial action if insufficient progress made

October 25th: Unite, which represents members working for Bord na Mona, has today written to the company setting out the union’s demands following yesterday’s announcement of projected redundancies.  The letter from Unite Regional Officer Colm Quinlan is available for download here, and states that the union will be seeking an early agreement that includes:

  • A concrete commitment that will prevent compulsory redundancy in any circumstance.
  • A significantly enhanced voluntary redundancy and early retirement agreement is put in place to achieve the objectives in (a) above.

The letter states that failure to progress these issues at an acceptable pace will result in Unite calling on the Bord na Mona Group of Unions to immediately commence a ballot for industrial action.
