Unions will meet Bord na Móna, which is based in Newbridge, today to discuss major job-losses in the midlands.
It's laying off 148 staff after the ESB shut a power plant at Lanesboro, Co Longford, last weekend.
The staff work in the peat sector at Mount Dillon, which supplies the electricity facility nearby.
The Lanesboro plant will be shut for up to 12 weeks because of environmental issues.
Siptu's Willie Noone says he'll be looking for answers from Bord na Móna today.
