DEL Committee Decision Undemocratic

28 November, 2011 - by Barry McElduff

Sinn Féin MLA Barry McElduff said that he is disappointed by the decision to reconvene the Department of Enterprise and Learning Committee meeting on Wednesday.

Mr. McElduff stated:

“The decision today taken at a specially convened committee meeting was both undemocratic and anti-trade union.  This decision overturned the democratic vote taken last week which voted for this week’s meeting to be postponed or moved so as not to clash with the trade union day of protest.

“Michelle Gildernew and myself will be respecting the rights of people to withdraw their labour and will not be crossing the picket line this Wednesday.”
