Strike Notice Served In ESB Moneypoint Row

ESB and two sub-contractors have been served strike notice by the Technical and Electrical Union (TEEU) in a dispute over wages at the Moneypoint power station in Co Clare.

Officials from the TEEU had earlier held talks with management from ESB on Monday in a bid to resolve a row over unpaid wages for Polish employees at the plant.

According to the union, 200 Polish employees working for the Polish company ZRE on the construction of a new power plant have not been paid for six weeks. They have now been told that their employment has been terminated.

The Labour Relations Commission has now intervened in the dispute and invited both sides to further talks at 11am on Tuesday.

Last night, the workers voted in favour of holding a protest at the plant.
