Drogheda Independent - - NEWS -

SINN Féin spokesper­son for Trans­port Imelda Mun­ster TD said she is de­lighted to co-spon­sor a bill that will fi­nally make trade union recog­ni­tion a le­gal right.

‘My col­league David Cul­li­nane TD and I in­tro­duced a Bill to the Dáil that makes trade union recog­ni­tion a le­gal right,’ she said. ‘You can­not claim to sup­port the right of work­ers to col­lec­tively bar­gain if you do not sup­port the right to trade union recog­ni­tion.’

She said the Bill will give prac­ti­cal ef­fect to the right of a worker to be rep­re­sented by a trade union.
