What: Campaigners to leave in letter to NI Water demanding intervention
When: 10.30am Monday 15th May
Where: NI Water HQ, Westland Road, Belfast
Campaigners seeking the restoration of four Unite members, including a shop steward dismissed by he the Murphy group’s Irish subsidiary are to demand NI Water intervene with Murphy International, a contractor, to secure the re-employment of the workers. The protest is the latest in a campaign to reinstate the workers after their dismissal on what Unite members believe to be spurious grounds.
Those leaving in a communication with NI Water include Lily Kerr, a longstanding trade unionist and Castle DEA candidate for the Workers Party.
Murphy International is understood to be tendering for a very high-value contract with NI Water and the campaign is engaging with all prospective councillors in the area to demand NI Water use their influence to get the Murphy 4 back to work.
