Pickets and protests at key Dublin sites, demonstration at HSA headquarters
July 26th: Unite, which represents over 90 per cent of crane operators in Ireland, today announced that members will be engaging in a second day of industrial action tomorrow (Thursday).
The strike will be nationwide. Pickets and protests will be placed on key Dublin sites from 6 am to 3 pm.
In addition, Unite members will hold a demonstration outside the Dublin headquarters of the Health and Safety Authority to highlight concerns that workers are being issued with crane operator certificates without fulfilling the relevant training and experience criteria. A letter outlining crane operators’ safety concerns will be handed in to the HSA.
The event will take place from 10 am to 11 am tomorrow (Thursday 27 July) outside the HSA headquarters (James Joyce Street, Dublin 1).
