End in sight? Paris Bakery workers to meet with boss today
The workers will sit down with one of the two owners of the company today about wages they are owed.

WORKERS AT THE beleagured Paris Bakery on Dublin’s Moore Street are to meet with one of the two owners today in a bid to reach a deal on wages they say they are owed.

Yannick Forel, who owns the well-known bakery with Ruth Savill, will sit down with staff today to try the resolve the ongoing situation.

More than 20 workers at the bakery had not been paid for several weeks, they say, when the owners shut the doors last Tuesday.

Employees began a sit-in at the premises late on Friday in protest at the lack of payment, sleeping on the shop floor and relying on trade unions and passers-by for food.

“We want the money owed to us as soon as possible,” said Anissa Hosany, one of the workers. “We do not have any money to live on because we haven’t been paid in so long”.

On Sunday, some of the workers went to the home of one of the co-owners, Ruth Savill, seeking payment of the unpaid wages.

More than 2,000 people have signed a petition calling for the workers to be paid the wages owed to them.
