Cullinane expresses support for HMV workers

17 January, 2013 - by David Cullinane TD


Sinn Féin Workers’ Rights spokesperson David Cullinane has expressed his support for HMV workers who are staging a sit-in at two separate stores in Limerick.

Speaking today Senator Cullinane said;

“Once again we have seen a major retailer go into administration and it is the workers who are left high and dry with no indication if they will be paid for work already done or redundancy.

“I offer my party’s support to the workers engaged in the sit-in and our local councillor Maurice Quinlivan has been to see them today to offer any assistance he can.

“The government must engage directly with the administrators in Britain, and with the receivers when they are appointed in this state, to ensure that these workers are paid what they are owed and receive their due entitlements.

“It is not good enough for the government to simply sit back and allow Irish workers to be treated in this manner.”
