Kearney encourages trade unionists to attend Irish Unity event

Sinn Féin spokesperson Declan Kearney has encouraged Trade Union members to attend tomorrow’s Irish Unity event organised by Trade Unionists for a New and United Ireland.

 ‘Uniting Ireland! Uniting Workers!’ is being held in the Mandate Head Office in Dublin from 10am to 1pm. The event will provide a platform for discussion and debate on the role of the Labour Movement in a New United Ireland.

Speaking on this development the Sinn Féin MLA said:

“I want to commend the Trade Unionists for a New and United Ireland for organising this important and timely event on Irish Unity.

“The most recent initiative by Ireland’s Future  called on the Irish Government to establish a citizens’ forum in a letter to An Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar. The letter was signed by over 1,000 citizens, including almost 70 prominent Trade Union members and officials, and demonstrated again the desire for a conversation on the future of Ireland and the potential for constitutional change. 

“The Labour Movement is an essential voice in this conversation. Labour cannot wait!

“The Labour Movement must make its voice heard in the debate on what shape a new Ireland will take and must ensure that workers’ rights and economic justice are at the heart of that discussion.”
