You can act on housing crisis
by Niall Shanahan
The Irish Congress of Trade Unions has developed an online tool that enables trade union members and others to send a direct message to your constituency TDs, urging them to support the Congress Charter for Housing Rights.
The Charter was developed, with input from Fórsa and other unions in response to the escalating housing crisis.
Congress general secretary Patricia King says a critical component of resolving the crisis “must be a major public housing building programme, as part of a wider strategy of transition to a European cost rental model and the creation of a secure and sustainable housing system for all.”
The Charter includes a number of principles which Congress is urging the Government to adopt and fully implement.
