352. Trade Union Revival

Please join us at patreon.com/tortoiseshack
Respect at work & solidarity in society!
As part of Trade Union Week, in this Reboot Republic, Rory talks with Ethel Buckley, Deputy General Secretary of SIPTU trade union and Maeve Richardson, the National Student Voice Organiser for the Irish Second-level Students’ Union (ISSU) and a SIPTU member.
We discuss the growing support for trade unions among young people, the reality of union busting in Ireland, the need for strong worker’ rights and collective bargaining legislation, and a new Union campaign organised by CWU, FSU, Mandate and SIPTU called Respect at Work. We also discuss the important role of unions in tackling the rise of the far right and racism and building cross society and worker solidarity.
