Ireland -Workers at crane manufacturer Liebherr reject recommendations -January 13, 2014

Labour Court recommendations aimed at resolving a four-year dispute over pay were rejected by a ballot (a 163 to 107 majority) of SIPTU members. The trade union represents about 300 of the crane manufacturing plant's 670 workforce. The recommendations with a 2.5% pay increase, backdated to May 2012, were accepted by the management in December 2013. The management argued that the pay claim was not justified, but undertook to honour it, provided other cost-saving proposals were addressed in negotiations.
