Aramark are a huge company making millions, billions indeed, globally. AIB bank hired them to provide catering services at their head office. And now both walk away from workers with decades of commitment to their job like workers don’t even matter. And this is becoming a pattern – Debenhams for instance, among others. That’s why solidarity is so important.

I was proud to address the taxi drivers on their demo today, outside the Dáil. Every stand taken by a group of workers at this time is crucial. Cuts to the Pandemic Unemployment Benefit are not acceptable. Workers are not cushioned by wealth, unlike the millionaires in government that make the decisions. Workers must stand together. Solidarity!
