Hotel promotion campaign for trade union members
An increasing number of employers are using 'agency workers' to circumvent employment and equality legislation. Because of gaps in Irish legislation it is entirely possible for an agency worker to be discriminated against, to be paid less and have worse working conditions. There are only three countries in Europe where this discrimination is legal - Hungary, the UK, and Ireland.
This campaign aims to bring about change in how Government responds to the crisis we face. So far we have seem little evidence of any fresh thinking, no evidence that fairness and justice are at the heart of that response. We believe there is a better, fairer way.
