ESB STRIKE IS AVERTED
Businesses and homes across County Wexford won’t face electricty blackouts for Christmas.
A planned strike by ESB workers has been averted after the two sides reached agreement at the Labour Relations Commission.
The row centred on a one point six billion euro deficit in the company’s pension fund.
The ESB says there will be no effect on the company’s balance sheet as a result of the settlement – but unions say that’s not the case.
Business groups are welcoming the agreement.
