Paul Gavan becomes latest addition to Sinn Féin Seanad team
Sinn Féin’s newly elected Senator Paul Gavan has said that he was immensely proud to have been elected to the Seanad and to have been given the opportunity to be a voice for workers’ rights in the Oireachtas.
Senator Gavan said;
“It is a great honour to have been elected to the Seanad and to be given the opportunity to represent the rights of workers in the Oireachtas. I would like to thank the Irish Congress of Trade Unions for their nomination and my own union of SIPTU for their support as I took on the Seanad election.
“As someone with experience in the trade union movement, I will be a vocal advocate for workers’ rights in the time ahead, particularly in the area of living wage where my colleague David Cullinane TD made great strides during his own time as a Senator. I also wish to restate my support for the ICTU Charter for Fair Conditions at Work, as I firmly believe that a strong economy cannot exist without a fair society.”
