They probably feel the same as every other worker in the country that has taken a cut in their wage.

The plight of the workers in Vita Cortex down the road from the Musgrave strike puts the problems (!) of the Chill workers in perspective.

I genuinely wish all Musgrave workers well. They are decent people from what i know. Its just that i would hate to see more wealth slipping out of this country to german and tesco shareholders. There is a long game to play. If we need to work smarter then we should jump at the chance. I am a proud irish person and make no apologies for it!

Don't be fooled by Musgrave Irish spin. Look at some of the highest earners in Musgrave - Peter and Mary Musgrave, resident in Lake Como (Swiss Shore), Hugh McKeown, resident in Barbados. That's the type of tax free living that the good people of the Musgrave Board take their money to.

What's wrong with that?

Ask them what they want..prob 2.5% inflation makes a big difference after 18 Eu p/h..
Hopefully they'll know how it is to be on 8.65 p/h or on the dole or to be employed one of the agency being used in Fonthill.

It's about time working men and women stand up for themselves, when I hear people knocking people looking after their pay and conditions it really annoys me.
I don't know the full story here but I would not believe all the ibec spin in the press about this and other matters.
To get an official strike today is next to impossible, so for that reason I would feel the workers have a strong case.
Having a job isn't something to be embarrassed about.
Companies are still making millions or where I work billions.
As a workmate of mine said
They won't waste a good recession.

Nothing at all, more power to them. I only mentioned it in the context of the comment regarding Tesco, Lidl and Aldi revenue leaving the country. Supervalu and Centra revenue leaves these fine shores in shed loads too.

This is absolutely incredible. I work in musgrave tramore road in the offices have a 4 year degree from ucc and am working with the company since 2004 and I am earning 6000 less than the average wage from
The chill warehouse .the last pay increase I got from the company was four years ago and as part of my job since I started I have changed my work through technogical for no extra money. The chill workers should b ashamed of themselves. There are plenty friends of mine who are unemployed who would do the job for half the price. 46000 a year is well paid. Its nearly enough about them when the musgrave union drivers won't back them.
