Mayor calls on Oatfield owners to agree a fair redundancy package

As the remaining 15 workers at the Oatfield factory in Letterkenny prepare for the shut down of the facility at the end of the month, the town's Mayor is calling on owners Zed Candy to honour their responsibilities in relation to redundacy payments.

Cllr Gerry Mc Monagle spoke to workers last evening, and says they're anxious that they receive three weeks pay per year of service, the same package that other staff at the plant received in 2010.
