This groundbreaking new report highlights how current laws governing access to abortion across the island of Ireland is now a major issue in the workplace and therefore a major issue for trade unions, in terms of those forced to travel abroad for treatment and the dilemmas faced by female workers experiencing crisis pregnancy. 

As the authors note, the study demonstrates "the necesity of listening to experience of abortion in any future debates, and concurs with outcomes of the recent Citizens’ Assembly process in the Republic ofIreland. It also signals the potential value of more union-wide debate, internal and public, on the topic."
