Bakery protest ends in victory

by Gazette Reporter

A sit-in at Paris Bakery has ended after Revenue Commissioners stepped in to wind up the company allowing workers access to the Insolvency Fund.
Workers celebrated on Tuesday when a letter from Revenue was hand-delivered to the premises on Moore Street notifying owners of its intention to wind up the company in the High Court.
The Migrant Rights Centre Ireland (MRCI) who were supporting the workers said this will “allow the workers to access the Insolvency Fund at last”.
The 19-day sit-in started when the bakery suddenly closed. Workers have been protesting to get back an estimated €100,000 owed to them in back wages. “As the employers refused to engage, the Revenue Commissioners have now stepped in,” MRCI added.
