Sinn Féin stands with Public Sector workers in their fight for fair pay – Kearney

Sinn Féin spokesperson on Workers Rights Declan Kearney has called for Public Sector workers to be given fair pay as they take to the picket lines today.

The South Antrim MLA said: 

“Sinn Féin fully supports public sector workers in their fight for fair pay. 

“These workers are at the coalface of delivering key public services, including health, education, and the economy.

“It is insulting that the British Government has cut Departmental budgets and that workers here are being denied the £1,500 compensatory payment that their counterparts in England and Wales have been offered.“Sinn Féin calls on the British Secretary of State to guarantee local workers a fair pay award. The imposition of further Tory cuts is unacceptable. This public sector pay crisis underscores the absolute urgency for the DUP to end its boycott of the power-sharing institutions. 

“Working families need the Executive restored to support the rights of both public and private sector workers in terms of pay levels and job security.” ENDS/CRÍOCH
