Workers can’t continue to be left in the lurch by DUP time wasting and inaction – O’Neill

First Minister Designate Michelle O’Neill said today that public service workers can’t continue to be left in the lurch any longer by DUP time wasting and inaction.

Michelle O’Neill was speaking as public service workers prepare to embark on widespread industrial action in support of their legitimate demands for fair pay.

Michelle O’Neill said:

“Almost a year on from the Windsor framework agreement, and two years since the DUP boycott of the Executive began, its endless two-way negotiation with the British Government has run its course.

“Time is being wasted, and essential financial resources to fund our public services now hang in the balance.

“The public want mature, pragmatic politics, they have had enough of the DUP’s time wasting and inaction.

“We have initiated a recall of the Assembly this week to restore the Executive, and urgently deliver a fair pay deal for public sector workers. It is decision time for the DUP. There can be more delays or no more excuses.

“It is time for positive leadership.

“Our public sector workers play a pivotal role right across our society, working in our hospitals, schools, on trains and buses, and within the civil service.

“The DUP should get back to work immediately with the rest of us, they cannot continue to leave workers and families in the lurch any longer.”
