Sinn Féin spokesperson for Foreign Affairs, Trade and Brexit, and all-Ireland Spokesperson on Workers Rights David Cullinane TD has launched a document outlining the party’s position on workers rights and the need for legislation to protect those rights.

Deputy Cullinane said:

“In the past year two of my Bills on workers rights were passed at second stage by the Dáil and are now in committee.

“One of these, the Banded Hours Bill, was recently referenced by the Labour Court when it agreed to suspend a case between Dunnes Stores and Mandate trade union for six months pending the passing of the bill into legislation.

“This shows the critical importance of legislation to secure a peaceful and constructive relationship between employees and employers, and I hope the Jobs Committee and the Dáil will enable the Bill to progress as quickly as possible.

“A society where workers are protected through legislation and collective organisation is one where decent levels of care and community thrive and survive.

“Our proposals include:

- banded hours legislation

- the protection of employees in collective redundancies,

- the right to access for trade unions to their members in the workplace

- the right to join a trade union for members of an Garda Siochána and the defence forces

- raising the minimum wage to a living wage

- additional resources to the Workplace Relations Commission

“Trade unions have an important role to play in ensuring that workers get not only a fair share of the proceeds from growth but enjoy decent working conditions and that this is best achieved through social dialogue that can peacefully resolve individual and collective disputes.

“After years of attack we need to legislate to protect workers rights and social cohesion."
