Planning for a City that works

The Working City Initiative seeks to address this lack of clarity on the nature of the employment Dublin City Council is seeking to create in its plans. The quality of workers’ employment has a direct impact on the economic and social climate of the city; from ensuring people have a level of disposal income that can support thriving local economies to guaranteeing workers have adequate time to invest in the voluntary and community activities which ensures Dublin’s communities are vibrant places to live in.

It is time for the City Council to take a truly holistic approach to the development of our city and play its full role in ensuring residents are provided with a standard of employment which will make Dublin a Working City.

In order to make concrete the City Council’s aspirations the Working City Initiate will seek to organise workers, community groups, politicians and political organisations for the objective of making the creation of decent jobs an integral part of plans for the development of the city.
