Crane operators striking today and tomorrow

unite-white-out-of-redEscalation comes against background of continuing CIF non-engagement

August 10th: Unite, which represents over 90% of crane operators in Ireland, has said that a nationwide strike of crane operators is taking place today (Thursday) and tomorrow.  The decision to escalate the dispute was taken earlier this week by the Unite Crane Operators’ Committee and reflects growing frustration at the ongoing refusal by the Construction Industry Federation to engage meaningfully with Unite in respect of members’ legitimate pay demands.

Pickets are ongoing at key Dublin sites today, and will be placed at sites in Dublin and Wexford tomorrow.
