SOLIDARITY WITH WORKERS IN THE PUBLIC GAS COMPANY

Federations and Regional Trade Unions across the country support the just struggle of the workers in the Public Gas Company (DEPA) that are employed through contractors, for permanent and stable job.

The liberalization of the energy market, which is being promoted by both the current government and New Democracy, not only obliges workers’ households to pay more and more into the pocket, but also increases the exploitation of the workers from the dozens of “modern slavery” contractor companies, that do not recognize a series of workers rights.

Theresa May's decision to sack herself as Tory leader and write her own redundancy notice as Prime Minister underlines the urgent need for a General Election.

We, the Connolly Youth Movement support the YES vote in the upcoming divorce referendum on Friday the 24th of May 2019,  currently, the law according to the constitution of the twenty six mandates that a married couple must be separated for four of the last five years to be granted a divorce, if the yes vote were to win, the oireachtas will then have the power to shorten this period to two years, while not perfect this is a far more preferable state of affairs, we believe this because we view it as an unnecessary invasion of privacy to have to prove that you have been separated for four of the last five years. This makes mutual divorces unnecessarily complex and poses many problems for someone facing domestic abuse from their spouse.

The decision of the British People to leave the EU in 2016 was a shock to the ruling class as represented by big business, the senior civil service, government and banking. The Government of the day had the support of the majority of trade unions, who publicly spoke up for Remain, in spite of the views of many of their members. Since that majority decision, certain sections of the left have set about vilifying those who voted leave. Working class voters have been called racist, stupid or selfish. Others seek to split the population into convenient stereotypes. They have argued the people got it wrong and should be given a chance to change their mind.
