Sinn Féin MLA Jemma Dolan has welcomed the contribution of trade unionists to the discussion on Irish unity.
Speaking after the publication of a discussion paper, ‘Trade Unionists for New and United Ireland’, Jemma Dolan said:
“Today’s publication sets out the Trade Union movement’s vision of a better society in a new and united Ireland.
“This is a welcome contribution to this growing debate and I would encourage others to get involved as well.
“It is clear that trade unionists see the issue of low pay and precarious work as an all-island problem that requires an all-Ireland solution.
“The vision of an Ireland with better wages, progressive taxation and an all-Island health service is something many people could subscribe to.
“The paper sets out the tangible benefits that a reunified Ireland can deliver for workers and families and I along with party colleagues look forward to engaging with trade unionists and worker representatives on these issues.”
