Voluntary sector protest
IMPACT and Siptu are organising a protest by community and voluntary sector workers this Wednesday, 22nd March at 1.30pm outside Dáil Éireann. The unions are calling on ministers Donohoe, Coveney and Varadkar to engage on community and voluntary sector funding, service commissioning, and pay restoration.
It’s over a year since IMPACT launched its ‘caring at what cost’ campaign for pay restoration in the community and voluntary sector. The initiative is seeking pay recovery through the gradual restoration of funding cuts in the agencies where they work. The union represents some 5,000 workers in voluntary and community organisations.
IMPACT is encouraging all members working in the sector – and their supporters – to attend. If you intend to go you should contact lead organiser Joe O’Connor on firstname.lastname@example.org.
