The GoSafe workers will also hold a protest outside Leinster House at 1.00 p.m. on the same day to highlight the manner in which the Department of Justice and the Garda have contracted the company in breach of the public procurement provisions of the Public Service Agreements.
 
SIPTU Organiser, Brendan Carr said: “Under the agreements made between SIPTU and other public service unions with the Government, state bodies should not use the services of companies which refuse to engage with the State’s industrial relations machinery.
 
“GoSafe has refused to attend the Workplace Relation Commission (WRC) in relation to its dispute with SIPTU members over conditions of employment and health and safety issues and has also refused to implement a Labour Court recommendation.”
 
He added: “The protest at Leinster House on Thursday 7th November is supported by the Irish Congress of Trade Unions which believes this dispute has wider implications for the public service agreements and has lobbied both the Department and the Garda on behalf of the GoSafe workers.”
