"Our picket began almost ten months ago on 15th December. It has been a long a difficult time for everyone. We want to thank all our families, particularly our wives and partners, for their steadfast support over these challenging months.
"We also want to thank our friends and neighbours and the people of counties Cavan, Monaghan and Meath and our supporters from across Ireland. Without their solidarity our efforts would have been much more difficult to sustain. Our dispute was also supported by many businesses and we thank them for their goodwill and generosity"
The workers thanked SIPTU Organiser, John Regan, and the union for its support, as well as the politicians who played a crucial role in finding an agreed solution to the dispute.
