Sinn Féin congratulates airport workers on tribunal victory

22 August, 2007


Sinn Féin Regional Development Spokesperson, Raymond McCartney MLA (Foyle) has congratulated the Belfast Airport Workers on their successful action in an industrial tribunal case against their unfair dismissal.

Raymond McCartney said:

" I congratulate Gordon McNeill, Madan Gupta and Chris Bowyer and their colleagues on their courageous action against security company ICTS for unfair dismissal. I also extend solidarity with their continued campaign to have the T&GWU acknowledge that it mishandled their case and to ensure that they are not left to pay the costs of this action which should have been taken on their behalf by the Union.

"It is important that Trade Unions in particular are seen to demonstrate that workers rights are paramount and that they will leave no stone unturned to protect them." ENDS
