Workers Rights

Support workers’ struggles

The city council will not stay neutral when its worker citizens are forced to do battle with big corporations. We shall open council buildings to help them co-ordinate and organise their struggle.

No favours for anti-union business

People Before Profit want to make Dublin a union town. We will not facilitate big companies with planning permission, when they make workers redundant in order to facilitate property speculation.

No tenders for non-union firms

Dublin City Council gives out a large number of tenders – for council housing maintenance, for example – to firms which do not respect workers’ rights. People Before Profit will hire more council staff and bring work in-house. There will be a workers rights clause in any other tenders to ensure that employees can join a union, have proper contracts and there is no bogus self-employment.
