The Green Isle dispute

Monday 15 March 2010

Mandate Trade Union wishes to congratulate the Green Isle Workers who have been successful in their protests against management regarding the unjust dismissal of three of their colleagues.

Mandate has been a supporter of the plight of these workers for several months in a dispute that has seen two workers participate in a hunger strike, one of which lasted over two weeks before the company agreed to a resolution.

In a joint statement, Green Isle Foods and the electrical union, the TEEU, said both parties have agreed to be bound by proposals put forward by independent mediators.

The statement confirmed that both parties will be bound by ‘confidentiality under the terms of the agreement’.

The agreement will be implemented, and accordingly, all forms of industrial action and other activity ceased on Wednesday (3rd March) with immediate effect.
