Following the announcement that C&C is to close its Borrisoleigh water bottling facility, trade union SIPTU has said it will engage in a process of consultation with management of the drinks company to protect as many of its members’ job as possible.
The closure could result in the loss of up to 144 jobs. SIPTU organiser, Terry Bryan, commented, “Our members are in shock after management called workers into a meeting today (January 12) at 2.00 pm in Borrisoleigh to tell them that the plant is to close.”
He added, “The information concerning the plant’s closure was initially leaked to the media and our members are now struggling to come to terms with this horrendous news at the start of the New Year.”
He said that the SIPTU workplace committee in Borrisoleigh now intends to engage with C&C senior management as soon as possible to establish what options are open to its members.
