Green Party Senator Grace O’Sullivan has called on Minister of State John Halligan to do everything he can to ensure workers on the verge of losing their jobs at Waterford Stanley are supported will have future employment prospects in the area.

Speaking today, Senator O’Sullivan said: “As a Waterford man and as Minister of State for Training, Skills and Innovation, it’s Deputy Halligan’s job and duty to ensure that everything is put in place in terms of re-training, re-skilling or coming up with ways to support the workers in perhaps setting up alternative opportunities where the skills they have can be put to good use.

“Like Waterford Crystal, Waterford Stanley is a name synonymous with quality, but also synonymous with the region and the name of Waterford. Yet again we see this “remote” management scenario, where decisions are made that are all about money and have no value on people or place. The hard work of good Waterford men and women has made this company an internationally recognised brand. It has been built on the dedication and graft of the highly skilled and creative workers. Yet again we see this unfair and sad situation where the people of Waterford and the city and county will see little or no material benefit, while faraway fat-cats can trade and profit on a reputation and brand that was founded and built in the Deise.”

“Workers, including a member of my extended family, are still reeling over the shock news they received a couple of days ago. It’s obviously an incredibly stressful and uncertain time for the workers and their loved ones. They deserve and need to get any official support available to them and I for one will work to ensure that happens.”
