Speaking at the rally organised by SIPTU today in support the Greyhound workers, Sinn Féin MEP for Dublin Lynn Boylan reiterated her party's support for the workers and called on Greyhound management to engage in a meaningful negotiation process with representatives of the workers.
Ms. Boylan said:
"This is yet another example of an employer mistreating its workers. We have seen far too many examples this, from the La Senza workers to the recent Paris Bakery dispute.
“I am urging the public to support the workers as it could be their job next. It is important to have unity on the issue of worker’s rights.
“I’ll use every opportunity on the EU Employment and Social Affairs Committee to defend the pay and conditions of workers in Ireland and fight for the principle of a decent wage for a decent day’s work.”
