The Labour Court has issued a series of recommendations in a bid to resolve the row between workers and management at Element Six in Co Clare. The workers are currently refusing to co-operate with a survival plan for the Shannon plant unless improved redundancy terms are offered to 200 employees who will lose their jobs under the plan. The Labour Court is recommending that they be given four weeks of pay for every year of service on top of their statutory entitlement to two weeks per year of service. The payments would be capped at one-and-a-half years' salary. The workers are expected to meet tomorrow to discuss the proposal. Element Six has warned that it will close most of the Shannon plant, with the loss of 370 jobs, unless the survival plan is implemented.
