Movement by Limerick County Councillors to have Dell Redundant Workers Case moved to up the Political Agenda.

The following is a letter received from:

Cllr Pat Fitzgerald Limerick County Council on Thursday June 16th 2010:

Dear Brian,

Thank you for your bullet points with regard to what you are about, a very well documented briefing of the history of your origin. I will be compiling, in my own style, your cause in ensuring that the European Globalisation fund will be granted to your members who lost their jobs in the downgrading and relocation of the Dell operation at Raheen.

I discussed your situation with my fellow councilors – Brigid Teefy who is a fellow independent councilor, Thomas Hannon Labour county councilor who is very familiar with the Dell workers cause from the very outset and James Heffernan a Labour councilor based in Kilfinnane, and we have agreed to move a motion at the June meeting of Limerick County Council in the Council Chamber whereby we now call on the ‘Taoiseach’ to act immediately to reduce the bureaucracy and inflexibility by state agencies in the management and allocation of the European Globilisation Fund. This motion was signed by Councilor Thomas Hannon, Councilor Patrick Fitzgerald, Councilor Bridget Teefy and Councilor James Heffernan.

I will discuss with my fellow councilors, who proposed this motion, if they might consider agreeing to invite members of your association to attend as observers to see for yourselves the case being made whereby we will be seeking the full support of the entire council members in submitting the motion to the Taoiseach.

I intend to meet with some elected members of government deputies to see if it is possible to meet with Minister Mary Coughlan who I believe is fully responsible for the Dell Globalisation Fund. ‘Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained’.

You can be sure of our full support at all times.

Best Regards,

Patrick C. Fitzgerald
