SIPTU President nominated Business Person of the Month by Business and Finance Magazine

9 Jun

Congratulations to Jack O’Connor, general president of Siptu, on his nomination as Business Person of the Month by the latest issue of the Irish monthly Business and Finance Magazine.

Lauded for his cave-in on the Croke Park proposals and seeking to block industrial action, Mr O’Connor is highly recommended by the Magazine for “realising the damage that further disruption could cause to Ireland’s reputation abroad.”

Jack is in very good company, as previous winners of this coveted title include Brian Lenihan (Minister for Finance), Patrick Kennedy (Paddy Power), Aidan Heavey (Tullow Oil), Jim Barry (NTR) and Jim O’Hara (Intel).

Could this be a first for a union leader?
