SIPTU is urgently seeking a meeting with Minister for Sport Shane Ross regarding a possible threat to 200 jobs at the FAI.
"We have received information that the FAI is in an extremely precarious financial situation with a threat of the organisation becoming insolvent in only a matter of weeks," said SIPTU's Denis Hynes.
This has caused great concern to our members who are employed by the FAI.
While we fully understand that under FIFA rules the government does not have a role in the running of the organisation we believe that with up to 200 jobs at risk the situation is one that requires the direct attention of the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Shane Ross.
The trade union, which represents development officers, coaches and administration staff, wishes to use the meeting in order to inform Minister Ross about their concerns and to discuss the possibility of intervention.
