South Dublin County Council Workers: Stay Strong Against Management

People Before Profit wholeheartedly support South Dublin County Council’s Road Department workers protesting for their wages today (Friday 16th May 2014). The management in SDCC seem to want to make the deduction of wages a regular occurrance. Only before Christmas the Parks Department workers were docked a two days wages. They then staged an occupation of the council building and had all wages owed returned to them. This proves that people power and protest works. Hopefully the workers protesting today (Friday 16th May 2014) will have the same outcome.SDCC Nicky Protest

Gateway – Forced Labour

There is also a general attack on council workers taking place. The new Gateway scheme, where unemployed people will be working for the council for €50 on top of social welfare payments, is a way of undermining wages and conditions for all council workers. It is also being used to replace some of the jobs lost in the councils during the recession. SIPTU, IMPACT and other unions need to take a clear stand against Gateway in order to protect their members.

Vote Left and Anti-Austerity next Friday (23rd May 2014)
