Ireland -Workers at Milne Foods on strike -July 11, 2013

Workers of Milne Foods in Birr, County Offaly, have gone on strike over pay and working conditions. The workers have previously sought constructive negotiations and even took the case to the labour court. While the labour court recommended Milne Foods to revise its pay and working conditions policies, nothing has been done. A trade union representative stated they felt all other options had been exhausted and explained that strike action was the only recourse left to the workers.
