Workers and union representatives held over three hours of talks with management at the Andersen Ireland plant in Rathkeale in Co Limerick today.
The company announced last Friday that it was going into voluntary liquidation.
Andersen Ireland manufactures costume jewellery and employs 166 people in the west Limerick town.
SIPTU representatives said the aim of today's talks with management was to try to save some of the jobs and to discuss redundancies for the workers.
However, staff expressed disappointment with the outcome of today’s meeting.
They said that the company is not offering any redundancy package.
SIPTU Industrial Organiser Denis Gormalley said that management were neither willing to indicate that they would or would not enter negotiations.
Staff said that they were disappointed and disgusted at the way they are being treated.
Thomas Hogan, who has worked in the facility for the past 29 years, said that workers felt they were being cast aside without any concern after so many years of service.
Attempts are also being made by the workers to arrange a meeting with local elected representatives.
