Cllr Gillian Coughlan said: “I am fully supportive of Micheal Martin’s comments on the continuing saga of the Vita Cortex workers in Cork. The government needs to stop sitting on it’s hands and take action. “


The FF Leader Micheál Martin has used Leaders’ Questions in the Dáil today to press the Taoiseach on his strategy to bring an end to the plight of Vita Cortex workers.


Deputy Martin’s intervention came as he published correspondence with the Office of the Director of Corporate Enforcement. The correspondence demonstrates that relying on the systems currently in place will not bring the matter to a speedy resolution.


Deputy Martin commented, “The Vita Cortex dispute has been allowed to drag on for too long. It is important that all political parties continue to work together on this, but I was keen today to press the Taoiseach on what is actually being done. Warm words of support are fine, but what is actually being done by Government?
