Community workers to discuss rebuilding of sector at meeting in Galway tomorrow

Date Released: 26 April 2017

Community Sector workers from across County Galway will attend a meeting to discuss the rebuilding of the sector in the Clayton Hotel in Galway, tomorrow (Wednesday, 26th April) at 7.00 p.m.

The event is the first in a series of regional meetings of the ‘Rebuilding Our Communities’ campaign which was recently launched by the SIPTU Community Sector at a protest outside Dáil Éireann.
 
SIPTU Public Administration and Community Division Organiser, John King, said: “The Rebuilding Our Communities campaign is focused on three key issues for workers across the sector; the funding of the vital services they deliver, problems associated with creeping privatisation and the need for movement on pay and related issues.
 
“All three of these issues directly impact on thousands of workers and tens of thousands of Community Sector service users across the country.”
 
SIPTU Community Sector Organiser, Eddie Mullins, said: “As part of the ‘Rebuilding Our Communities’ campaign, SIPTU is holding a series of seminars, to which our members in the Community Sector are invited. At these meetings the workers will discuss what issues they wish to see the campaign concentrate on in their local areas.
 
“Among those who will address the meeting in Galway is the SIPTU Vice President, Gene Mealy. In the coming days and weeks our members will be meeting with politicians across the country to inform them about what they need to do to help rebuild our communities.”
 
Further meetings of the ‘Rebuilding Our Communities’ campaign are scheduled to take place in the Connolly Hall in Cork, on 4th May, and Liberty Hall in Dublin on 17th May.
