Workers seek pay for 3km move

HUNDREDS of Bord Gais workers are seeking payment for an imminent move to new offices less then 3km away.
They have made a claim for disturbance money to compensate them for the change.
Bord Gais services in Dublin are being consolidated due to a rise in staff numbers.
The current headquarters in Foley Street, Dublin 1, have become too small and the offices are being moved to Warrington Place.
Larry Donald, from Bord Gais, told the Irish Independent that the claim would not affect the change of location.
Unions have made a claim for compensation for additional travel time. The talks are ongoing.
Ten years ago staff members got between €2,000 to €8,000 per person for disturbance money from the Labour Court for similar moves.
