Belfast GAA club in Industrial Tribunal over failure to pay redundancy
A SIPTU member’s claim against Ard Eoin Kickhams GAC for failure to pay her statutory redundancy entitlements will be heard by the Industrial Tribunal in Belfast on Friday, 17th April.
The case involves the Belfast GAA club’s former bar manager, Cathy McMahon, who was employed for 25 years until her post was declared redundant on 23rd October 2014.
Despite attempts by SIPTU to negotiate with the management of Ard Eoin Kickhams GAC, it has refused to enter into any discussions. As part of the attempts to bring this situation to a satisfactory conclusion SIPTU has written to the GAA President, Aogan O'Fearghail. Apart from a holding email no further communications have been received to this letter.
Cathy McMahon said: “I worked my notice and it was a severe blow when I was told there would be a delay in receiving my redundancy payment. It is now six months since I was made redundant and nothing has been forthcoming.”
