Strike negotiations required at Omagh Meats
Workers have taken to the picket line over proposed restructuring.
Strike action at a meat factory in Northern Ireland could see the location close down.
One-third of the workforce at Omagh Meats has taken to the picket line over plans to restructure staffing levels.
Because of this, strike negotiations may be required in order to help both parties come to an agreement over the future.
Foyle Food Group, which owns the building, has said that if the demonstrations do not stop, then the plant may be shut down.
Speaking to the BBC, Gareth Scott of Unite said: "What we wish to do is to reach a compromise, a solution and resolution to this dispute. Calling off the action will not resolve the problems."
He added the employer - which also owns Donegal Meat Processors, Hilton Meats Cookstown and Foyle Proteins - has to sit down and meet workers to try and thrash out a deal, rather than pretend there is no problem.
