STOP THE SAFE PASS PRICE GOUGE! The pandemic is being used to increase prices. Safe Pass was selling at 80 euro in March. Now Safe Pass costs 160 on average in Ireland. During the pandemic it has often cost as much as as much as 200. In the case of provision through another language it sells for up to 250 euro. With manual handling cert, 280. Minister Harris’s Department of Further and Higher Education oversees Solas who set the standards and approve licenses for these courses. Safe Pass should not be a key income stream or cash cow for any company or organisation. Please sign the petition calling for an end to this price gouging.


Bríd gets assurance from Minister English regarding appealing the recent legal ruling against Sectoral Employment Orders, and that the government will meet, not only with Debenhams workers, but also with representatives from Construction, Contract Cleaners and Security companies, most affected by SEOs. She also challenges the contention that the workers rights’ are protected by the law, pointing out that union recognition is still not enshrined in law, some 100 years after the Lockout.
