Even a couple of hours ago, the Herald was reporting a long weekend for the La Senza workers, but RTE has just reported that they have reached a settlement with KPMG.

Run up the flag and celebrate.

We don't know the details of the deal reached by KPMG and the workers' union, and it has been said in reports so far that it's 'confidential'. I'd like to hear what the workers themselves have to say - I do hope they got all of what was owing to them.

One of them was interviewed on RTE radio (Drive Time). She seemed happy.
But she was on a year out from college, rather than depending on La Senza to pay the mortgage.

Their spokeswoman was extremely happy on SixOne.

Was that the blonde "mature" one?

I take it that you are not "mature" yourself :) ?

Fantastic. Bloody brilliant news. Well done. People power!

I pondered a few weeks ago whether Vita Cortex(before La Senza popped up) would be the victory that might signal a turning of the tide. Who knows, but in the least, having an actual victory after so many years of defeats and demoralization might give the resistance a bit of momentum.
