Almost 40 security staff at the Corrib Gas Terminal in north Mayo have begun industrial action in a dispute over payments and terms of employment.

The personnel involved in the one-day stoppage at the Bellanaboy facility are all members of SIPTU.

Those taking part in the dispute are employed by the Senaca Group, a security services firm, which is contracted by Shell E&P Ireland to safeguard its operations in Co Mayo. 

SIPTU has said the workers are taking the action after a number of contracts were terminated and working hours were unilaterally reduced in recent weeks.

It said the company has refused to attend the Labour Court for arbitration on other issues, including local operational practices, functions around first-aid provision and mustering – a safety practice in place on the site.

Union members will start a work-to-rule after today’s work stoppage.

    Oh and folks, if you wanted to be taking seriously the lads in the background of the photo wouldn’t be play fighting.

    And another thing don’t be hiding behind signs.

    Also for the shop stewards, don’t be hiding behind the backs of others – ye are could for that…..

    There is more to this story than what is been actually told.

    They don’t want to do any work but still get paid for it. You should be ashamed of yourselves.
