Love In The Wild is a new play written by Lisa Walsh, and opens next month at the Axis theatre in Ballymun. Lisa is a member of Fórsa and a social worker in child protection services. We met last week to talk about her inspiration for the play, its development from page to stage, and her desire to challenge the stigma of addiction.
Fórsa has agreed to enter a dialogue about the future of water service delivery with the Government and employers. Like other unions however, the union has ruled out an Irish Water proposal for a single water authority.
Fórsa’s Municipal Employees’ Division is to contact Dublin City councillors about the growing problem of fly-tipping in the capital. The move follows increased requests for council waste crews to lift illegal waste.
The cost of childcare in Dublin is significantly higher than in other parts of the country, according to a new report. Leitrim had the lowest average full-time childcare costs, while Dun Laoighaire-Rathdown is the most expensive.
Fórsa members in Dublin City Council’s sports and leisure centres will gain from a union agreement on service reforms. The deal was agreed with the union after consultation with members before Christmas.
