Occupation of Waterford Crystal centre endsMonday 23 March 2009 12.29
The occupation of the Waterford Crystal visitor centre has ended.
The decision came following a meeting of workers and former employees earlier today.
The occupation started on 30 January.
In a statement, Unite said that it hoped the proposal would result in the retention of manufacturing in Waterford.
The proposals to end the sit-in was accepted by approximately 90% of the hundreds of workers and former employees who turned up at a mass meeting this afternoon.
The proposals include the retention of around 110 full time jobs and up to 50 part-time positions.
