West Belfast MP Paul Maskey to attend TUC Congress
West Belfast Sinn Féin MP Paul Maskey will travel to Liverpool Monday and Tuesday 8/9th September to attend the Trade Union Congress.
Paul Maskey said:
"I welcome the opportunity to attend the TUC Congress where I will brief senior union leaders on Sinn Féin's opposition to the Tory welfare cuts and austerity agendas.
Sinn Fein have made clear that devolution in the north of Ireland is not about implementing Conservative policies dreamt up in London."
"I will also take advantage of the occasion to listen to what approach the unions in Britain are taking to oppose these attacks on the benefit system and the welfare state itself.
It can only be beneficial for political parties and unions to act in partnership in our opposition to these unacceptable attacks on the unemployed, disabled and low income families.
I hope to strengthen our links with union leaders that will be mutually beneficial in our common battle to defeat the Tory agenda."
