SIPTU members shocked at Bank of Ireland closures announcement

SIPTU Organiser, Peadar Nolan said: “This has come as a complete bolt out of the blue and at a time when staff have been working tirelessly during the Covid-19 crisis to ensure the network is operational and kept open for customers. We are calling on the bank to halt any plans to close these branches, particularly while staff and customers are trying to cope during the pandemic.

“We are seeking an immediate meeting with management to discuss this decision and will be seeking alternatives to the plan. We also want the Minister for Finance, Paschal Donohoe, to intervene and protect the interests of staff and customers.

“This really is a major shock for our members some who have been with the bank all of their working lives. The uncertainty created by this announcement is devastating.
