Support for re-opening of Lagan Brick production plant
Management at the Lagan Brick plant in Drumgill, Kingscourt, county Cavan, signed a pre-production agreement with SIPTU on Wednesday, 25th March, in advance of the re-opening of the facility.
SIPTU Organiser, John Regan, said: “The resumption of brick production at this plant will create a number of opportunities for the re-employment of workers who previously worked at the facility as well as new employment opportunities. We are pleased to have concluded a pre-production deal with the company which will ensure that workers will benefit from decent terms and conditions in the workplace.
He added: “The company must also be commended for providing its former employees with training opportunities in accordance with an agreement that was concluded with SIPTU following a period of dispute when the facility closed in December 2011."
