Ireland -Lagan Brick dispute comes to an end -September 13, 2012

The dispute over redundancy payments at Lagan Brick that started in December 2011 has been resolved as the laid-off workers and management agreed on new terms that have been kept confidential. The dispute, reported repeatedly in this newsletter, started when twenty-five former employees of closed down Lagan Brick plant in Kingscourt sought improved redundancy packages and payment of the statutory redundancy rates. The labour court recommended improved redundancy packages and payment terms in a ruling marked by the absence of Lagan Brick management. After another brief period of non-communication from the side of the company, a settlement has now been announced, ending the long lasting conflict.
