A protest by the The Construction Group of Unions outside
St Patrick’s College, Drumcondra, the Department of Education, Marlborough Street, Dublin today as part of a campaign opposing the “continued abuse of skilled workers on school projects”.
“Workers are being forced to work as self-employed, despite the fact that they are clearly employees. This is done to drive wages even lower and to deny the workers concerned their pension and death-in-service entitlements as well as legal protection for holiday pay and other basic employment rights.”
