The strike at the chocolate manufacturer's plant in Coolock, north Dublin, by members of the Unite and Siptu trade unions came to a temporary halt on Friday night following two days of pickets.

Unions agreed to suspend the industrial action to facilitate talks with the Workplace Relations Commission in a dispute over the outsourcing of 17 jobs at the company's stores division.

The unions' negotiating committees will meet today and convene with shop stewards tomorrow before issuing a recommendation that will be put to members in a ballot during a consultation period that could extend past Easter due to the upcoming holidays.
