An open letter to the people of Ireland, politicians and employers, from the Vita Cortex workers

Today marks the 42nd day of our sit-in. When we began this protest we really didn’t believe that we would still be here in late January. We honestly believed that Jack Ronan would see the light and pay us a just redundancy given the 847 years of service that we have given to Vita Cortex. Sadly, following the collapse of LRC talks on Friday, it is clear that he remains determined to cling to an intransigent position. Some of the moves made on his part, over the course of the negotiations, have left us feeling disgusted.
