The Minister for Jobs, Richard Bruton, appears to have ruled out a meeting with former workers of Lufthansa Technik in Dublin.
More than 400 people lost their jobs at the plant in West Dublin before Christmas after the parent Company decided to shut it down.
People Before Profit TD Richard Boyd Barrett appealed to Richard Bruton to meet the former staff who he says believe there is a future for the facility:
I'll have to consider that - unfortunately I don't have a role at this point. The company has made a decision- the diction is passed."
"The challenge for me now is to find new opportunities. If there are proposals that are forthcoming from workers that could help me find [solutions] … we'd be delighted to receive them."
