Industrial action at Kells Credit Union begins tomorrow

Workers in St. Colmcilles’s Credit Union in Kells, county Meath, will commence industrial action tomorrow (27th June) morning at 9.30 a.m. in response to a management failure to recognise their union, SIPTU, for collective bargaining purposes.

SIPTU Sector Organiser, Adrian Kane, said: “It was unacceptable that management has refused to recognise their employees’ right to join and be represented collectively by a trade union.

“Tomorrow is the first one day stoppage. There will be further industrial action if management does not implement the terms of the Labour Court recommendation which determined that it should recognise the workers’ union.”

Kane added that the SIPTU members in Kells Credit Union had been overwhelmed by the support they have received from the local community and local representatives from all political parties.
