Second planned strike takes place at Kerry Group plant in Listowel

The second of four planned 24 hour strikes at Kerry Group’s plant in Listowel is due to begin tonight.

290 workers at Kerry Ingredients are seeking a 14 per cent pay increase due to the introduction of a computer system, which they claim places greater demands on them.

The SIPTU members have rejected a Labour Court recommendation of a 12 per cent increase to which Kerry Group has agreed.

This second strike will begin at 10 o’clock tonight.
