The Lord Mayor of Cork, Councillor Mick Finn welcomed the confirmation. “I am glad to see that an agreement has been reached. The Fire Service provide a much-valued service to our communities. I would also like to thank the Workplace Relations Commission for coming on board to help find a solution agreeable to both sides.”.

The conciliation conference took place following a request by City Hall management to the WRC earlier this week to expedite the process.
