Congress tackles tipping practices
by Diarmaid Mac a Bhaird

The Irish Congress of Trade Unions (ICTU) has organised a briefing on tipping practices in the hospitality sector, and the union group ONE Galway’s campaign for legal changes on the issue.


The event is part of ICTU’s monthly ‘Friday Briefing’ series, which features informal talks on topical workplace issues.


The event will hear from ICTU’s Trades Council Network and One Program Co-ordinator Fiona Dunne, lecturer and academic Deirdre Curran, Senator Paul Gavan, and Siptu organiser and One Galway local co-ordinator Clem Shevlin.


ONE Galway’s tipping campaign is encouraging customers in hotels, restaurants and pubs to ask how their tips are distributed and what percentage workers receive.


ONE Galway is a Congress-backed program to strengthen trade union awareness, build links between unions and communities, and enhance union’s local engagement. A similar initiative is in place in Cork.


The Congress Briefing takes place at ICTU’s head office in 31-32 Parnell Square, Dublin 1, at 10:30am on Friday 24th May. If you wish to attend, please email
