Roadstone Management Condemned For Using 'Bully Boy Tactics' On Workers

Management at Roadstone Woods have been accused of using 'bully boy tactics' after taking €10m from payroll costs.

At a meeting with SIPTU and TEEU shop stewards, the management also threatened to close some of its operations and place all workers on proactive notice.

SIPTU Organiser, Davy Lane, said: "This is against the background of the directors of Cement Roadstone Holdings receiving massive bonuses on reaching targets which inflict financial hardship on the ordinary worker in Roadstone Woods Ltd.

"The Roadstone workers will remain on strike until such time as a satisfactory resolution is achieved."
