Ferris speaks in support of Air Traffic Controllers
January 20, 2010
The Sinn Féin Spokesperson on Workers Rights Martin Ferris spoke in the Dáil this afternoon in support of the air traffic controllers who took limited industrial action at airports today in protest at the suspension without pay of 14 workers. Deputy Ferris was among a number of TDs who forced a short debate on the issue.
The Kerry North TD said: “While the disruption to flights and the inconvenience to travellers is to be regretted, the workers involved in this action have a legitimate grievance. The suspensions should be lifted immediately and the normal arbitration procedures followed in order to address the issues.” ENDS
