Brid Smith TD: NEW WORKERS RIGHTS BILL PROPOSED TODAY.
I had the privelege of moving this bill. We want worker’s rights protected in projects that are funded by public money. Very often the state colludes deliberately or by accidently, in doing workers down. It does this by awarding contracts to firms that treat their employees shamefully, or who sub-contract to others to do so. The State must end this practice, which only fuels the ‘race to the bottom’ for workers.
