Meeting on redundancy terms takes place at Listowel plant.

Siptu members at the Imperial Stag Plant in Listowel are meeting today to vote on terms of their redundancy package. The 28 staff members were offered a statutory redundancy earlier during the week. No further counter offer was made from the American directors of the knife manufacturing plant. The company announced the loss of 28 jobs at the factory a week ago. It was unclear as to what members of staff were to lose their jobs until Monday. 13 staff are to continue production at the plant.
