Workers represented by Unite (a Union now affiliated with the United Steelworkers here in north america) clearly are not letting their livelihood and community be jeopardized by a receiver from the Deloitte accounting firm.

As our economies continue to contract, workers should well take heed of their activist power to combat cost-cutting measures that decimate their communities.

To assist the Irish workers please locate your local Deloitte office here:

Ask to speak with the managing partner of the office and voice your concern about layoffs at the Waterford Crystal Factory ordered by a Deloitte receiver.

Thank you all for the rec!
