Officials from the Department of Enterprise have been in touch with SNC Lavalin about jobs losses at their Clonmel offices.

Staff at the global engineering and construction business – formerly known as Kentz – are facing compulsory redundancies over the coming weeks with some workers already let go.

Local Independent TD Mattie McGrath has been told that Minister Frances Fitzgerald’s officials have contacted the company to clarify the situation.

Speaking on Tipp Today he said the workers deserved better treatment.
