Sinn Féin MPs proud to support ‘Scrap the Cap’ Rally
Sinn Féin MP Paul Maskey has expressed solidarity with the RCN ‘Scrap the Cap’ campaign in advance of their rally in London today.
The West Belfast MP and Sinn Féin MP for West Tyrone, Barry McElduff, will be in attendance at the RCN rally, followed by the ‘Scrap the Cap’ protest meeting in Portcullis House.
Speaking in advance of the day’s events, Paul Maskey MP said:
“Sinn Féin fully support RCN and the ‘Scrap the Cap’ campaign, and look forward to standing with them tomorrow
“Nurses provide a vital service and deserve a fair wage for their work.
“Like most public sector workers, they have been subjected to years of relentless Tory austerity.
“Now the Tories have new partners in Westminster to continue their attacks on the public sector.
"The DUP’s first act in support of the Tory government was to vote for an effective cut to the wages of emergency and public service workers.
“Sinn Féin will continue to oppose austerity, defend frontline services and campaign for adequate funding for our public services and our public sector workers."
