Both sides in the row over redundancy payments for Thomas Cook workers in Dublin are due to hold talks with the Labour Relations Commission today.

Employees of the travel firm recently occupied its offices on Grafton Street for five days as part of a protest over the redundancy terms on offer.

They were later arrested after gardaí forced their way into the building to enforce a court ruling ordering them to leave.

The workers are being offered five weeks of pay per year of service, but they say Thomas Cook is very profitable and can afford to pay a lot more.
