Cabinet must release new rules on Sunday work – Cullinane ‏

27 July, 2011


Sinn Féin spokesperson on Workers Rights, Senator David Cullinane, has today challenged the Government to come clean and immediately publish cabinet proposals for Sunday work.

Senator Cullinane said:

“It is totally unacceptable that this controversial policy affecting 200,000 employees is being decided in secret.

“Sinn Féin predicted that further attacks on employees’ conditions would happen once
the Dáil went into recess without resolving the issues of Joint Labour Committies.

“The cabinet must publish their new proposals for Sunday work immediately and in the absence of Joint Labour Committees Minister Bruton must fully engage with the unions before any final proposals are signed off by the government.”
