Bord na Mona workers not being heard on retirement issues-SIPTU

The retirement age and pensions are one of the main issues facing Bord na Mona workers as the election canvass continues in the Shannonside region.

Fianna Fail party leader Michael Martin visited Longford and Lanesboro today as hundreds of jobs are being lost in peat production at Bord na Mona and the ESB.

The group of unions say that discussions with the company are ongoing, but management is not engaging positively on a number of issues.


Spokesperson Willie Noone says there’s a real concern with people coming up to retirement.
