Re: Response from Company Representatives – Pay and Benefits
Please see the below response from Mr. Tommy Smyth the Company’s HR Consultant regarding our letter sent on 25th October 2023;
“On behalf of Ken Brookes, I want to acknowledge your recent letter.
Obviously, Ken has noted the budget announcement that the NMW is moving to €12.70 and is calculating the impact this will have on overall payroll.
I am due to meet with him next week to catch up on your letter and review the business plan and financial projections. I will revert to you after this to set up a meeting with you and your members.
Thank you for your patience and as always you are ensured of meaningful engagement and transparency of accounts as we look at wages and terms for your Members.”
Given the above response we are now waiting on a date from the company to begin talks.
As always I will keep you updated on any further developments.
