Workers at Roadstone Woods Ltd have ended strike action following Labour Court recommedation

SIPTU members in Roadstone Woods Ltd have accepted a Labour Court Recommendation and concluded a three week strike at the building materials company.

Around 350 members of SIPTU and the TEEU at the building materials firm had gone on strike over bonuses on 16 June.

Last week Labour Court Deputy Chairman Brendan Hayes proposed restoration of the bonuses should be phased over a speedier time frame, with 25% paid in 2014, 40% in 2015, 55% in 2016, with the full bonus restored in 2017, subject to the business environment at that time.

SIPTU Organiser, Davy Lane, said: "SIPTU members in Roadstone Woods Ltd voted on to accept a Labour Court Recommendation that emerged following talks between the company and union representatives last week.

He added: "SIPTU members can now move forward knowing that in the next three years they will receive payments and at the end of this period the full bonus will be paid.”
